HTML - Structuring Websites
Students learn about the language behind all websites: HTML. Students learn about several different HTML tags as well as the basic structure of a web page. Students use HTML to develop several of their own creative web pages.
CSS - Styling Websites
Students learn the language CSS and use it to style their web pages. Students learn about the benefits of styling with CSS and will use CSS to create several styled web pages of their own.
Advanced HTML and CSS
This module dives deeper into different things we can do with HTML and CSS. Students practice advanced topics in HTML and CSS, including visibility, image filtering, interaction, and animation, to develop more advanced websites.
Project - Create Your Homepage
Students build their own websites about themselves. This site will be accessible on their own custom domain and will be continually improved by the student as they continue on in the course. It will serve as a running portfolio of each creative project they create in the course.
Project: Build an Interactive Resume!
Students create a single page, interactive resume. Students are expected to add several animations using jQuery to prove their ability to modify HTML and CSS. This unit also examines web design theories that can help students improve the aesthetics of their resumes, and to evaluate the quality of a website based on its layout.
Storing and Collecting Data
Students explore the role that data plays in creating websites. Students will learn about the various ways that data is taken from webpages, as well as ways to secure themselves from unwanted data collection. Students also learn how to incorporate data collection into their own websites, and collect simple information from users.
How to Build and Maintain a Website
Students explore how to store web files, secure a domain name, and maintain a website. The majority of the lessons will be explanatory - students will not be expected to host and maintain a webpage off CodeHS, but will be given the tools needed to do so if they desire.
Project - Iterate Your Web Development
Students are tasked with creating a website of their own choosing. The website will have to follow specific criteria - certain number of pages, responsiveness, and use of APIs. Students go through a feedback process, and learn about making their websites more accessible to a wide array of users.
Computer Science Careers
Students take some time to explore and discover different computer science careers and professional student organizations. They will also examine inclusive coding and how to avoid bias in computer programming.
