Rubric for Final Portfolio
(200 points)
Follow directions exactly (ask if confused).

Create two web pages
First page is "cover" page with a linked graphic to the...

Second page, which is a menu page

The menu page also has a graphic and a table (Insert>Table)

This table should be visible against the black background and should have links to the other elements of your work.These links to your work should specify a Blank Target so that a new webpage opens with each click. Ask me if you are unsure.

Open PowerPoint and save your two PPT projects as webpages. Save into the final project portfolio folder

Do the same for the Excel project and the WP project

For the graphics, create another webpage. Locate your graphics on the T-Drive and move them to the portfolio folder. Then insert the graphics onto this page (put them in a borderless table of one column width and as many rows as needed to hold the pictures.)

Save this new webpage as graphics.htm in the portfolio folder

Run through all your links in preview mode. Make sure everything works before you finish.

Final Project--An e-Portfolio


Your completed projects and activities of this semester will be collected and presented in an e-Portfolio. An e-Portfolio is a web/browser-based front end for your digital work.


Here are the steps. The procedures will be given live in class.


  • Create a webpage as the portal for your e-Portfolio.
  • Create a second menu page that links to each of your projects.
  • Create graphics in Fireworks to enliven these two pages.



  • Note. There are some operations that will need to be performed on your existing projects to make them suitable for linking from your memo page.

    This is the link for getting an image you'll need for the graphic creation

    Tonight we finish out Excel projects.

    Next Monday we begin Dreamweaver. Your work during the week is collect the assets you will need to create your web project.

    The project is a Principal's Web Newsletter. It will be written for teachers and staff at a hypothetical school, where you are the principal. Your task, as the instructional leader of the school, is to help develop your faculty. You do this by finding important and interesting items related to the theory and practice of teaching.

    Come to class next week with:

    Texts (short introductions or explanations of facts, news, opinions related to teaching). You get these from the web. Always cite sources, and do not plagiarize. Summarize items in your own words.

    Links (find important websites and know the reasons why you are sending your teachers to visit these sites. Tell them why they should spend the time to visit the sites).

    Images (photos, your own, or from the web. More credit if you use your own photos--providing they are appropriate. Don't forget what you learned about image editing using Fireworks: the web can only display JPGs and GIFs; smaller file size is better; crop and simplify pictures [not too much, just enough]).

    Assignment for March 15

    Due at the end of class on Monday March 15th.

    Create a 20 slide PowerPoint presentation of your school.
    This presentation should be geared for parents and visitors to a school open-house.
    You must make a title slide (a photo with a big, bold, readable title superimposed on it.)
    Then your next 18 slides are pictures of the school that tell a story or somehow are a logical sequence of shots.
    Make sure you have plenty of kid's faces (if permitted, if not talk to me).
    Don't make it all buildings: show activities of learning and teaching.
    Your last slide is a black slide.
    Make the show run automatically, changing slides every four seconds. Do NOT use random transitions. Do NOT use any sound effects.

    Why Lincoln? Read the following links.

    First, read the Gettysburg Address (It's short).

    Then look at the famous Gettysburg Address PowerPoint

    Another article.

    Yet another article.

    And one more article.

    Are you getting the picture? We'll discuss implications of this in class next week.

    Tonight, we'll make a relatively sin-free PowerPoint.

    Get the dozen pictures of famous FSA photographer Dorothea Lange from this site.

    Left click the thumbnails. Right click the enlarged photos and save them to your DESKTOP in a folder you create called "FSA."

    Then open PowerPoint and follow the directions given in class.
