How should my students design their page?
First, you need to review all four web templates, and then select one to use as your background. All templates have the same components but vary on the skill level. For example, template 1 has a Google video player, audio player, and a photo slideshow. To use the Google video player on the page, students will need to embed the video. But if you don't know how, you can the video player and add a text link to your video on Google. Please review each template, and decide which one will be the most user friendly for you and your students. Instructions are included in the template.
Click on the selected design to download the files and then begin working. To edit the template, you will need to unzip and extract each zipped file. You will need to have Front Page, Dreamweaver, or another HTML editor on your computer to open the files. Links to zipped files (as found on http://www.nationalww2museum.org/education/for-teachers/podcast-and-web-page-project.html)
Can my students type directly onto the template?
Yes! Your students can type directly onto the template. Or if you have them compose their text in a word document, then have your student copy the text and then paste into the notepad. From there, copy and paste the notepad text onto the template. This way their text will be able formatted correctly.
