OVERVIEW:
For several weeks, you have been typing source codes and finding solutions to the errors in those codes. Some students have been incredibly successful. Others have struggled. Today is not only about grading those source codes, but helping everyone get caught up at least to the point of completing one or two codes.
During this lesson, all Web Design I students will be meeting with the teacher one on one, demonstrating their progress or lack of progress, then asking questions and getting answers. At the end of class, during the final 20 minutes, all source codes will be graded and together, as a class, we will move forward.
LEARNING GOAL #2: The Basics of HTML
Students will be able to design multiple web pages with HTML through the use of simple Text Editors.

WELCOME BACK
This is the last time you will be given a chance in class to work on your graded source codes. In other words, you will be receiving a grade today for work you have completed. You have at least 60 minutes to complete as much as you can. Grading will take place during the last 20 minutes of class.
Below is a list of codes that you are required to type out. When you finish typing them out, your job is to save the work, open the page with Chrome, and see if it matches the “Looks Like” image in the table below. If it does not, you need to go back through your code and fix your mistakes. If it looks right, simply raise your hand and ask to be checked.
You are responsible for getting 4 out of 6 source codes completed for an A (3/6 = B, 2/6 = C, 1/6 = D, 0/6 = F). Even if you finish 4 source codes, the more pages you build, the more prepared you’ll be for the learning goal project. Source Codes will be due by the end of today.

You should be proud of yourself. If you’ve gotten this far, then not only have you finished the assignment, but you’ve proven that your pretty fast. Getting through all those source codes isn’t easy for most people, so you have three choices in what you can do during this lesson period. Remember, the teacher will be meeting with ALL Web Design I students, including you, during this time, so if you are in this section, you should be able to prove that the other source codes are finished. Below are your choices:

Choice #1: Peer Tutoring
Those who get this far have demonstrated not only that they know how to code, but that they can see errors and fix mistakes. That’s you. But there are a lot of other students in the room who could benefit from your skill, especially since you know how all the source codes are supposed to look. Take this time to begin working with students that you can tell are struggling to find and fix errors. Doing this will make you a better coder because you’ll learn how to see what other students are missing.

Choice #2: Codecademy
This is the easiest choice of the three. Basically, if you choose Codecademy, you are choosing to work independently at your own pace, learning HTML and CSS without any outside instruction. You may use headphones and listen to music, but only if it does not become a noticeable distraction. Remember, you are here to learn and study.

Choice #3: W3Schools Template Designs
This is for the adventurous student. If you feel like you are ready to experiment with HTML a little more and you want the freedom to experiment with other codes, your choice here is to explore the W3Schools Templates, copy/paste a template code into a Notepad document and see if you can build a website about the Fossa Mammal.
