Goal of the class:

04 November 2004 Thursday (Day 2 0f 2nd quarter) Create a new website today.  Click here to read about starting a new website using Microsoft Front Page with Windows XP.  Follow the instructions to create your new website.  After following the hyperlink to the instruction page leave the page open but reduce it so you can refer back to the page as needed.

05 November 2004 Friday (Day 3 of 2nd quarter) By now you should have created a new website.  Your website should have an Index page, a Home page, and an About Me page.  You have learned how to create a hyperlink, and how to change the background color of your web page.  Today you will create a new page by left clicking on the New Page icon that is located at the far left hand side of the toolbar.  Right after creating the page, type "My Class Schedule" on the top of the page and center it.  Change the font size to 24 point bold red font, then save it using [Save As] with a name of My_Class_Schedule.  Once you have saved this new page, close it and open your About Me page.  In your About Me page add the words "My Class Schedule", highlight those words and make them into a hyperlink that will go to the My_Class_Schedule page.  Move the mouse pointer until it is over the new hyperlink. Next, while holding down the Control key, click on the new hyperlink with the left mouse button to advance to the new My_Class_Schedule page.  On the My_Class_Schedule page you will enter a list of your classes, including the period number.  Also enter your homeroom, and lunch, in the correct order. Next you will create a new web page, using the New Page icon, for each of your classes including homeroom and lunch.  Use the class name for the name of the page or use the period to create a page name like Period1. Create hyperlinks to each new page from the My_Class_Schedule page.  On each new page type some information about each class, including the class name, the teacher's name, and the room number.  Select a different background color for each of your class pages.

08 November 2004 Monday (Day 4 of 2nd quarter) Your website should now contain the following pages.

1) Index page (Hyperlinked to go to the Homepage)
2) Home page (Hyperlinked to About me page and to My class schedule page)

Remember that each of your individual class pages is to have a different background color.  Choose a font color that will be visible with the chosen background color.

Today you will make sure that all of these pages are in your website and that each page has the required information.  Once all the required information is shown on each page you will enter a hyperlink on each page to take you back to the previous page, and a hyperlink to return you to the homepage.  Today on each web page you will enter a line near the top of the page containing the following.

(This page was modified on (Insert date and time) by [your name].)

To insert the current date and time choose [Insert] from the menu bar and then choose [Date and Time] from the drop-down menu.  The top of this web page shows what this line should look like.  If you do this on one page, you can then highlight the line, then use Control + C to copy it, and then use Control + V to paste it into each of your pages.  

When your website is up to date  and contains all the required page and hyperlinks, you may work on making your pages more elaborate.

09 November 2004 Tuesday (Day 5 of 2nd quarter)

Use the New Page icon to create a new page and name it "Site Map Page".  Create a hyperlink on the Home page to the site map page.  

The site map page should have each and every page in your website listed in alphabetical order, with a hyperlink to each page.  

To make your site map page more useful each page may have more than one entry.  For example, the About Me page may have another entry on the site map page called "Information about the author", which will also provide a hyperlink to the About Me page

You should have at least 14 entries in your site map page, one for each of the pages listed in the assignment for yesterday.  Also you should create an entry and a hyperlink to any pictures you have entered into your website.  

From this point on each time you add a page you need to also add a hyperlink to the new page on your site map page.

After you have created a site map page, you will create a Sports and Entertainment page where you will list you favorite sports and entertainments.  Add a hyperlink to this new page from the  Home page and also from the site map page

Also today you will learn how to create a Dynamic Link Effect.  Click the instructions on How to Create a Dynamic Effect Effect and follow the instructions.

10 November 2004 Wednesday (Day 6 of 2nd quarter)

Yesterday you learned how to created Dynamic Effects on a web page, and you learned about a site map page.  You also should have created a Sports and Entertainment page.

Today you will learn how to check your hyperlinks without having to look at each one, one at a time. To learn about viewing your hyperlinks all at once, click here for the information on how to view all your hyperlinks.  You will do this with your website and see how it is linked.  You will also learn how to find web pages that are not linked.  Unlinked web pages are AKA orphaned pages. Click here for information on finding web pages that have been created, but not linked to any other page in your website.  After reading the instruction check your web to see if you have any orphaned pages.  After checking all hyperlinks and checking for orphaned pages, create a page called "My Favorites" and provide a hyperlink to it from your home page. Remember to use Save As to save it. This is the page you will use to list your favorite websites on the internet.  Add some hyperlinks to various websites into the My Favorites page. Then continue working on your sports and entertainment page.

If you use a photo you must save it to your web folder, do not link it to an internet site.  Also you must give credit to the site that provided the picture. (Your choice of groups will probably not be the same as mine. Mr. A.)  Have fun with this assignment.  Remember to save the page and then create hyperlinks to the new page from the home page and from the site map page, and from your Sports and Entertainment page.

This can be confusing.  Read this several times and view the teacher's frames page before attempting to do this.
