Week of Sept. 8-12

Sounds crazy, but the semester is one-third over at the end of this week, so don't get behind!

Late this week you will take an online test about all of the topics so far:  Photoshop, 3DS, HTML, and maybe some Excel.

In the meantime, here's the general flow of the week:
  • Monday - review how to link to an outside website, how to link to a second page that YOU wrote and saved, as well as how to link to an image that you saved, and want to display on a page.   Remember, save any pictures or web pages in the same place, make a folder for them.   Maybe an introduction to CSS.  YOU should have done, as a team, a two-page website that links back and forth, contains an image on each page, and at least one link to an outside website.  We will check this today.

  • Tuesday - definitely getting a start on CSS, Cascading Style Sheet.  This page is probably the most important:  http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_howto.asp   (Interesting note:  when using colors, the official school orange is #cc5500). You should be able to color letters, background, as well as choose fonts and more.  If you have time, check out the modern cool tools of CSS3:  http://www.w3schools.com/css/css3_intro.asp

  • Wednesday - using "div" tags and CSS to actually arrange your page into "boxes" where you can put your text.  Probably want to watch carefully on this one!  That's this part, and it's pretty cool too.  You will be doing a bigger project that uses all of this, so learn!  http://learnlayout.com/no-layout.html  - especially focus on slides 12 and/or 13

  • Thursday and Friday - 2 days of HTML and CSS project work, with images and CSS!  Here is the assignment.  On Monday, we will squeeze in an online, multiple choice test on all of the topics so far this year - Photoshop, 3DS, HTML, CSS.
