Personal Website: Academics Page Project
Adding Examples of Your Best Work

The goal of this project is to insert two or more school assignments that you think represent your abilities on your academics.html page. Possibilities include papers, web page assignments, video clips of a drama presentation, or recordings of musical performances.

    • Open your academics.html page
    • If you don't have any body text yet, go back and complete the Personal Website: Content Project before you proceed any futher.
    • Create a separate Div Tag for each assignment.
    • Paste each assignment in it's entirety into the DIV you just created. .
    • At least one of the two assignments must be written.
    • If you completed your assignment using Google Documents:
      • Remove any formating you added in Google Documents.
        • Select your text
        • Click the "Remove Formatting" button. (It looks like this: Tx)
      • Select the page’s text, and copy it (Ctrl+C)
      • Open your academics.html page in Dreamweaver
      • Right click in the Div you created for your work (see above)
      • Paste Special<Text only<OK
      • The text should have normal (not Bold) formatting.
        • Note: If you don't follow the previous step, all the text might be bold, and points will be deducted from your grade.
      • Repeat this process for any other assignments you created in Google Documents.
    • To get your work from your home computer to your web page folder:
      • You can upload the work to Google Documents (this method is free, easy, and reliable), and then follow the directions, above. .
      • You can send the work to yourself by attaching it to an email that you can access from school. (this method is also free, easy, and reliable). Move the document to your Web Design folder in Google Drive. and then insert the document into your academic page.
      • You can save the work to a flash drive that you plug into your computer at school. Move the document to your Web Design folder in Google Drive. and then insert the document into your academic page. This method is not free, and it is not reliable.
      • You can burn the work to a CD. Then, move the document to your Web Design folder in Google Drive. and then insert the document into your academic page. This method is not free, and it is not reliable.
      • You can scan the work and then use one of the above options to move it into your Google Drive.
      • You can retype the work from an original copy. This is the slowest method, but sometimes it's the only option. Create the document to your Web Design folder in Google Drive. and then insert the document into your academic page.
