This project compromises of both a written and technical portion. I have created an interactive web source for teaches in the undergraduate literature classroom to encourage a dynamic experience with literary text in order to promote active engagement in literature for students at any level of technological experience. Students or teachers are able to input outside texts that utilize graphs, charts, and interactive web tools in order to promote learning skills transferable to both academic and non-academic career paths. By utilizing The Story of an Hour, I explore the uses of this software in order to demonstrate the potential of the digital humanities to fortify students to be active in the creation of their work and education and by extension, their future careers within and outside academia.
