What you need to do......Create a four page site that represents the home page of any business, museum, or non-profit of your choice. This can be entirely made up unless you have a connection to a real establishment.
Consider appropriate content for each page; what information would be of interest to a typical user.
Your grade will be determined by:
Check out these examples of local businesses represented by their websites. This might give you some inspiration in the design, content, and organization of your assignment.
Today...Go through the rubric and score yourself:
Comment on this post....be sure to include:
1.) Your name.
2.) List your 5 pages (1 blog, 1 about me, 3 choice pages)
3.) The total score you gave yourself
4.) 3-5 areas needing improvment (this will be your focus for the next few days)
5.) 3-5 strengths of your website (what do you think is working well so far)
Tomorrow....I will score you on the same rubric and we will have a "conference" to discuss what is working successfully, what needs more attention and anything else that might be missing.
**Hint: Each of the 5 pages on your site should include
-a header image
-a header title
-at least one link to an external site.
-some text explaining the purpose of that page.
