I am not here today, but rest assured, you should have plenty of work to keep you busy. Today you will be working on your websites. You need to create a total of 6 pages in total so far. 4 of these pages will be about the technology person whose name you drew randomly.
Your website should consist of the following pages.
Your Top 3 pages should be named just as they are shown above. Your 3 pages under IT should be named just as they are shown; Background, Importance and Timeline. You should NOT be able to navigate to Background, Importance or Timeline from your Home or About Me pages. You should only be able to navigate to them via your IT page. You should be able to navigate to your IT, Background, Importance and Timeline pages from any of these 4 pages.Guidelines for your Pages:Home:
Should be a "landing page". This is a page that welcomes a web visitor to your site. About Me:
Should be about you. You can write up about 5-6 sentences and include pictures of either yourself or things you are interested in. IT:
Should be Titled: Firstname Lastname Project (insert your subjects name here) Remember, the TITLE is different then the page NAME. The page TITLE only appears at the top of the page and is not in the address or URL of the page. A perfect example of this is www.brentzeise.net. The NAME is brentzeise.net, but the TITLE is "Welcome to Mr. Z's Tech Corner." You should include a large, high quality picture of your subject. You should include TEXT LINKS to the Background, Importance and Timeline pages. Background Page:
This should include early pictures (if available) and the story of your subject BEFORE he started to make it big on the World Wide Web/Internet/Computer Industry. For some subjects that might be very young. Importance:
This page is a continuation of the Background Page. Here you tell their story from the point when they started in the computer/www/internet. Timeline:
Here you should create a literal timeline of that persons life. Major accomplishments, should be noted.
*All 4 pages above should link to each other. IT - Background - Importance - Timeline*
To see a couple of examples of what the 9th Graders did earlier this year:http://chayoungb.weebly.com/ernst-julius-roumlhm.htmlhttp://micol97.weebly.com/speer.htmlThe Look of your pages:
The rules that we went over regarding Presentations for the most part apply here. Don't worry about the length of writing part. It's ok to write a lot on your webpage. You should remember things like:
That should be enough for you now. I expect all of you to be working on your websites. I will be checking on the weekend to see if progress has been made and that you were not just wasting time in class!
- Sharp Clear Pictures
- Nice contrasting colors to enhance readability
- Don't make your Font too small
- Pleasant Balanced Layout
- Not too many sounds, noises etc. You'll notice that Cha Young has an audio file playing when you go to her site about Rohm. Music is ok, as long as it is not overwhelming, and it is appropriate to your subject.
