This Saturday and Your Third Six Weeks Grade

November 11, 2008

If you volunteer at the recycling drive this Saturday, for at least 5 hours, you will guarantee yourself an 80 for the third six weeks. The drive is from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. If you show up on time at either 8:00 or 11:00 and WORK for the entire drive, you will be given credit. You must sign up with me. If you would rather exchange this time for your semester exam, that is also an option.

Fifth Six Weeks Grade – DUE 27th of March

March 25, 2008

In three weeks, on the 27th of March, your grade will be determined by the following criteria:

Up to 60 points:

For each lesson completed in Flash you will get 5 points. To receive 5 points, the finished product from the lesson must be posted on your blog, with a minimum three sentence description of what you did and what you learned, and there must be a TEK (number and text).

For each flash lesson you will get 12 points. You need to finish lessons 1-5 to get the 60 points. This is due to the lack of copies of chapters for your use.

Up to 40 points:

A simple web page with a table and CSS. You will get lessons in the basics of HTML and CSS, but you will not have enough time to complete the page if you don’t get started in the next two weeks. Don’t wait until the last minute. The grading criteria for the web page is below, and here: basic-web-page-criteria.pdf. You will need to email the file to receive credit.

Everyone will receive a progress report who does not submit the documentation for these two assignments.

And what’s after this? When you complete Flash and your HTML page, you get to start video!


Basic Web Page Criteria

The page must be created in HTML, and the folder should include your image and “styles.css.” No other file types will be accepted.

Your web page must contain text (formatted in at least six different ways), links (to external pages), background colors, two text colors, an image and a table.

Here’s what you need to do:

Choose a topic and get some basic info. You may even want to use a text editor to get your text organized.

Read a bit about HTML and what it is here and CSS here.

Use an online editor to edit your HTML, then use notepad to edit your final HTML and CSS file.

Be sure that your HTML file, CSS and image are in a folder by themselves on your “H drive.”

When you are ready to submit your page, attach the three files to an email and make the subject of the email: HTML with CSS Your Name

You will get points on this assignment by including these elements:

Files attached to email with proper subject line 5 points

Three files included: filename.htm, style.css, and image 10 points

Content is organized and includes three paragraphs, four headings 5 points

Table with minimum three columns and three rows 10 points

Background color and text in two colors 5 points

Three working links to external sites 5 points

40 points possible

A Joke You’ll Get from Learning HTML

March 4, 2008

If you’ve figured out that there is a beginning and an ending tag in HTML, you might get this joke from an article on AutoBlogGreen:

But $4.00 gas is actually here today is some parts of the country. What does the White House have to say to that? “I think that the national average, as of earlier this week, was $3.15, according to the Energy Department and other surveys” says the White House. The EIA actually says $3.13 and “other surveys” must mean things like the AAA survey, which says $3.16. So, the White House uses multiple surveys for the average price of gas but only use a single, government source for predicting gas prices? That makes perfect sense because the EIA has been so incredibly accurate and its predictions have never changed (/sarcasm).
