Re: Nancy's Fingerpainting
I agree that most of the "programs" I look at just seem too complicated and
not worth the time in the short time available to us, and the countless
demands pulling us in all directions. That's why the work we do is simple,
and doesn't involve using programs.
If you look at the hypertext haikus, and go to "View" and then "Source" you
will see the coding for the links. If I wanted to make a link from my page
to Ted's page it
would look like this:
<a href="http://www.tnellen.com/cybereng/ ">CyberEnglish</a>
and CyberEnglish becomes the link.
We teach them only a little basic coding, and give it to them as they need
it when they want to start adding background colors and pictures. Ted has a
Style Sheet on his page with info on this. Lots of it makes sense <i> for
italics, <u> for underline, etc., and it's pretty easy to learn. And steal
from other pages.
I also hope that you'll be at C & W so we can show you what we're doing.
