Project 1: HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) Programming and Home Page Creation
The goal of this project is to develop an awareness in the student of the power of the Internet and its accessibility to any individual who wishes to learn a few of the tools used to access the World Wide Web. As the students proceed with this project they have several points of interest:
students will preview various educational web sites with the aim to study content,
class discussion will take place on the features and structure of the Hypertext Markup
Using text editors and HTML editors, students will develop skills that allow them to

The Internet connection provided by Stellar Schools will allow the students to:
Access tools and programs necessary for the construction of the pages.
allow students to post their completed pages, for themselves and the school, for public
to develop an understanding of the HTML programming language.
to develop an understanding of web page design and construction.
to demonstrate the ability to work on a specific task, as outlined by others, and produce a
specific product (a homepage) that meets those demands.
The impact of this project on this school will be measured by the students' and teachers' increased awareness of the Internet technology. The success of the project will be determined by the accessibility of the school's offering, which will be open to teachers, students, parents, and the community at large.
