This year is all about the Internet or 'net' as we like to call it! We will be learning how the Internet works and how to build basic web pages using the scripting language HTML. The world has changed in the last 15 years with the Internet becoming a vital part of our everyday lives. However, most people pay little notice to how it actually works. Few people ask themself how is it that webpages and digital information travel around the world in the blink of an eye. That will all change for you this year. You're going to learn not only how those web pages travel around the globe but also how to make your own pages! You'll learn everything from how a network allows you to share HTML documents to how to make those documents yourself. We will also spend time discussing how to stay safe while online as well as how to act responsibly while you surf the net. It will be a fun year where you learn and grow a lot!

Course Overview

The goal of the class is teach you how the Internet works, how to stay online, and how to build basic webpages using the scripting language HTML.

At the end of the course you will be responsible for the knowing the following:

  Assessment

Your progress and understanding will be evaluated through a combination of homework assignments, practical in-class assignments, individual and group projects, tests, and class participation.

Homework assignments will consist of a combination of readings and worksheets related to those readings. The purpose of homework is to further your understanding of the concepts covered in class and/or to prepare you for an upcoming class. Please see the homework section to know what homework is required for each class.
Throughout the year you will be given assignments in class that have to be completed in class. These assignments will be used to check your understanding of the concepts that we are covering in class.
Each quarter you will have to complete a project. You need to think of the projects as a chance to showcase the skills and knowledge that you have learned in class so do your best. These projects will be individual or group based. We will go over the requirements of each project in class. You will also be provided time in class to work on them. However, most projects will require that you take your work home and finish it up there.
At the end of each quarter there will be a summative test to check your understanding of the concepts covered during that quarter. Tests are usually made up of three sections:True / False, Multiple Choice, and Short Answers.

Participation involves showing up to class with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. More specifically this includes showing up to class on time before the bell rings with the proper materials, actively participating in all classroom activities and discussions, completing work on time (see late work policy below), and treating your fellow classmates and teacher in a respectful and mature manner.

  Late Work Policy

Throughout the year you will be asked to complete various assignments for grades. It is your responsibility to get your work completed on time. Work is due before the start of class on the due date.If work is handed in after the start of class, it is considered late.

Failure to get your work turned in on time will result in the following:

  •  Deduction of 10% per calendar day that it is late, up to 5 days.
  •  A detention for each day that it is late.
  •  If work is not handed in after 5 days, you will receive a zero for the graded assignment and your parents will be notified through e-mail of the situation.
  •  If work is not handed in a 2nd time in a quarter, along with the above repercussions, your parents will be called in for a 1:1 meeting to discuss the situation.

I can not stress enough how important it is to complete your work and to get it in on time. We only have class once a week. This translates to about 8 classes per quarter and only 8 chances for you to show me what you have learned and for me to give you grade. Receiving a zero for any of your assignments will dramatically affect your grade. Receiving two zeroes in one quarter will most likely result in failure.

  Quarter 3 Schedule

You will have homework due almost every class. It is your responsibility to arrive to class with your homework completed. If your homework is not completed at the start of class it will be considered late. See the late work policy above for more information on what happens if your work is late.

Please read the homework schedule below to make sure you arrive to class with the appropriate completed homework. Remember that homework is due at the start of class.
