  • 1. WEB SITE SUBMISSIONSHISD Social Studies August 14, 2010Marty Daniel, mdaniel@houstonisd.org
  • 2. Web Sites
    Interactive
    Reflects your ability to use software and technology to communicate the topic’s significance in history.
    A collection of web pages, interconnected by hyperlinks
    Presents primary and secondary sources, interactive multimedia, and historical analysis
  • 3. Web Sites
    Should incorporate
    textual and non-textual (photographs, maps, music, etc.)
    descriptions, interpretations, and sources to engage and inform viewers.
    Must be able to operate, and have access to, the Internet, appropriate software and equipment.
  • 4. Continued for 2010-2011
    Websites must be created using Weebly.http://nhd.weebly.com/
    STUDENTS MUST GO THROUGH THE NHD PORTAL ABOVE – THEY MAY NOT GO DIRECTLY TO WEEBLY.COM.
  • 5. More…
    A full suite of site-building tools will be available on the NHD Weebly portal. While third-party tools may be used to develop objects and components for an entry, the final code must be uploaded with the Weebly tools. All objects or components constructed with third-party tools (e.g. Dreamweaver, iWeb, MS Expression) must be portable to and function correctly with the Weebly editor.
  • 6. More…
    All hosting will be performed by Weebly servers. The 100 MB size restriction on entries will remain. Students are free to begin building their entries now, and work on the same Weebly web site as they advance through levels of competition. With the Weebly system, students are free to access and work on their sites at any time other than judging periods, periods during which their sites will be closed to any editing.
  • 7. More…
    Four hard copies of the home page, a process paper, and an annotated bibliography will still be required for submission.
  • 8. Judging Criteria
  • 9. Note: Historical Quality is the same as other categories.
  • 10. Note: Relation to Theme is the same as other categories.
    Note: These categories are unique to Web Site entries.
  • 11. Clear Navigation
    Suggested paradigm – one page per each category to help organize the site.
    Home Page – introduction & summary
    In History
    The Debate and Diplomacy
    Successes, Failures, and Consequences
    Sources – this can be a more informal web type page which point to a pdf of the bibliography
  • 12. Unique to Web Sites
    Make certain the site contains multimedia elements such as animated maps, timelines, short video and/or audio clips
    Have analysis with each item to give context
  • 13. Citations
    Hard copy of the annotated bibliography (divided between primary and secondary sources.)
    Sources page on the website
    AND
    Proper credit must be given within the site as well as in the annotated bibliography
  • 14. Page Content
    The content and appearance of a page cannot change when the page is refreshed in the browser.
    Random text or image generators are not allowed.
  • 15. Scoring Winners…
    Have students review and score winning web entries
    Let’s look at a couple right now
  • 16. Practical Matters…
    Make friends with your tech teacher
    This new method gives any student the ability to use this type project
    Focus on readability
    Dark colors or patterned backgrounds are often problematic
    Go for simple design
