Move toward the Midterm
It's time to start thinking about the midterm. This assignment will be the first step on that path.
The midterm will give you a chance to begin to develop a web site based in part on a theme of your choice. For instance, if you are interested in Frogs, then you could create a section of your site based on Frogs.
NOTE: Each student should have a unique theme, or at least a unique approach to their theme. Unless they truly are your passion, I'm expecting that Frogs will not be the subject you write on. Pick something you are interested in.
The details of the midterm are not clear to me yet, but your site will contain:
- Links to all the work you have done so far
- Links to a subdirectory that will, in the midterm, contain at least seven pages dedicated to your unique theme.
For this assignment, I want you to
- Create a subdirectory of your repository called theme.
- In the theme directory put a file called index.html. It will be the home page for your theme pages.
- In theme/index.html put:
- An h1 element that acts as the title for your theme. For instance, if your theme is Frogs then your h1 element might contain the word Frogs.
- Beneath the h1 element place a p element describing your theme.
- Also include an img element with a picture related to your theme. You can change the picture later, but get something in there to get started.
- Hint: If your theme was Frogs then you might look on the Wikimedia commons for pictures of Frogs.
Some information on the Wikimedia.
- Home Page
- Wikimedia Commons
- A Wikimedia Commons search on Frogs
- Home page for a frog image
- Link to a particular frog image you might use in your web site.
Note that there is a difference between the home page for a particular image, and an actual image to include on your web pages. On the image page, there is a list of several image resolutions. Click on one of these to get to the image for inclusion in your site.
Notice the Use this file and related links on the image home page. More information is available from a Scientific American article on crediting the Wikimedia Commons.
