Due: Friday, May 8 by 8pm

This is a simple pass/fail assignment (e.g. students who complete the assignment by the deadline will receive an A, late assignments will be docked one letter grade per week, incomplete assignments will receive an F), comprised of 3 steps:

  1. Sign up for a Codeacademy account and go to the HTML & CSS course.
  2. Complete the following two units from the course: Introduction to HTML (which has 2 parts: HTML Basics and Build Your Own Web Page) and Introduction to CSS (only part 1 is required: CSS: An Overview)
  3. Email a screengrab of your badges to your TA.  It should look like this:


This assignment is designed simply to give you some basic understanding of the architecture of web pages and an introduction to how they’re built using HTML and CSS.  You should also view the source code of several of your favorite sites (in Chrome, click “View” then “Developer” and “View Source” in the dropdown menu) to get a sense of how the basic literacies you’ve just developed play out on a professional scale.
