Although coding itself is important as a lesson objective, you may want to have
it do more. It could involve creating resource pages with learning tools and
links to websites which offer authentic information or it could also be used to
learn and understand marketing as employment preparation, or even a posted
"dummy" resume page. A cool thing to do may be to contact the sponsors of
your sports teams, yearbook or newspaper and ask if the students could prepare
a web page acknowledging their contributions. You would probably need the
permission of your administrators for that one.
You could also work with the school newspaper and have the students prepare
the individual pages of the school newspapers in html or xhtml so the paper
could be read online.
For the marketing project, the students could develop a line of marketing
products: brochures, flyers, business cards and stationery and a website. The
website design should reflect the style, logo and lettering of the other products
to teach the students how important those things are in advertising in order to
help future consumers or patrons recognize and remember the business.
Good luck to you.
