Learn To Code: HTML & CSS (TEENS)

Dear Parents & Students
This page is the one-stop resource for everything we do in class!
You will be able to find links to class content, Kahoot quizzes and more resources below.
This website will be updated weekly or bi-weekly.

- Please note that these resources are only available for the duration of the course -

USB REQUIRED

Teachers get students working on a website project that spans several lessons and it’s always the best way to save your work
You ‘can’ save on the student laptops, however your files may be deleted. So hook a USB on a lanyard and keep it handy!

RECOMMENDED @home Typing

Students can practice their typing skills on www.typingclub.com or even introduce a bit of quirky game fun with zty.pe

So warm up those fingers and get to typing away because being able to type confidently helps when you’re first getting started as a coder!

CLASS #4 (NOVEMBER 5, 2019)

In today’s class, we reviewed previous coding content to see how much we remembered. Repetition is key! Even though it may seem like hard work, it’s important to start from scratch every so often, just to see what you need more help with!

  • Reviewed:

    • title, h1, h2, p, and img tags

    • How to setup an HTML document from scratch

  • Learned:

    • Proper file folder setup & organization

    • Naming conventions

    • What are code editors and how do they make our coding lives easier?

    • What is an index.html page used for?

    • CSS file setup & how to link external CSS files

    • CSS:

      • background-color, color, font-size

    • What is Lorem Ipsum?

    • What are HEX colour codes?

At the end of class, students participated in a Kahoot that challenged them to remember content from some of the previous three lessons!

The code editor that we will be using in class from now on is Atom, which can be downloaded for free (for PC or Mac) here. It is very similar to other code editors (such as Sublime Text), so use what you feel the most comfortable with! Code editors have a number of useful shortcuts that help make coding quicker and easier to learn! Of course, you are also welcome to continue coding with a plain text editor. Code editors are simply fancier text editors!
