HTML/CSS Intro. to Web Coding

At middle school level my classes are what we call an exploratory class. All of my classes as an exploratory class will be a “NO” fail class. I only ask that students are always trying to work at the best of their abilities. All though your student cannot fail my class, a lack of effort or trying can result in a “NG” No Grade in my class. Which over the course of the year if the student does not complete the minimum course work will turn into a "U" grade. (If it is 4th qtr it will be an automatic "U") I reserve this for students that after many communications and tries to get them to participate in the class, that they do not give work effort.


Lowest possible grade in this class is a "C-" this is for a student that does do some of the lesson or even all of them but does not do a Final website project.


Doing all of the lessons and the website project will give a student a final grade from “C” to an “A” depending on how well they meet the rubric requirements on the website project which is 30% of grade.


From this class a student will either go into introduction to programming (if not already taken) or move onto Intermediate programming depending on their situation with Introduction to programming and completion of it from when taken before.
