9:45 HTML and CSS Review
This morning we will be doing a bit of HTML and CSS review. When we come back from our small “break”, we will be diving more into web content. Things such as:
- Content Management Systems
- Search Engine Optimization
- More App Development
- GitHub Resources
- And More…
This morning after a brief review, I will be asking you to redesign an existing site into the specific wireframe I have given below. We will be using PizzaPut.com as our content / re-design. Beautiful website…
I am not asking for this to be responsive. But if you use %’s instead of pixels for your widths and heights, your page will become more responsive.
Keep in mind these few elements when designing your page:
Right before break, Tweet where you are at and what you had a difficult time with. This is a formative assessment to see where everyone is with Web Content. See how much we forgot over the summer.

12:30 EHS students Leave for 7/8
12:40 CTE Students leave for 7/8
12:45 Google 20%
UPDATE: Who is thinking SkillsUSA teams? This can include Web, Game, or 3D Animation for the group competitions. T-shirt and Pin are later. I want to gauge interest. If you are thinking of doing one of these contests, you should probably be using this time to start making that game or diving hard into code / animations. This is truly up to you. Later in the year (Feb-Mar.) we will have dedicated time for SkillsUSA preparation, but I would not rely solely on that for creating a game.
I am giving you all TWO AFTERNOONS this year for google 20%. I did this for two big key reasons:
- Ability to continue projects more seamlessly from week to week.
- Allow every student (who doesn’t leave on both afternoons) to get a google 20% each week.
I truly do feel we make our best work when our creativity can flourish. Set yourself a reasonable SCOPE for a project and go from there.
Self-directed time for a topic of choice. It can be anything CAWD related. Go out, find a couple tutorials, maybe some inspiration for a specific piece of art, or learn a new skill altogether. Rough topics below to maybe help you out:
I’ll be going around at 1:00 every Tuesday & Friday to gather your topics. You can always continue your projects from week to week (I highly encourage that your do!), but I need to see significant progress.
