It looked fantabulous on my desktop display, but when anyone else opened it it looked like crap. The fixed pixels of elements and text spilled out of the divs.
I tried really hard to fix it but it looks like crap. I should have juts used Google Docs for my syllabus.
#NWPleads I have long respected @BRCrandall out reach with under represented voices and his cherishing silenced narratives. More importantly he awakens those once silenced.
I would love a chance to collaborate and think of NWP regional events.
-@wiobyrne, I , and a crew of others used to organize the print2pixel unconference. What about writing unconferences? Not really grant funded just some local begging.
-I am also creating the Youth Zone at our Women's Studies conference this year. Its in April. Thinking of doing some activitites. I would love to co-sponsor the space with CT Writing Project. Even better if you want to bring young women to share their voice.
-I am also the Gear Up coordinator for literacy. I will be running a class for 11th graders every Monday?Wednesday. We will be doing some SAT prep but mainly, writing, and #walkmyworld.
-Local affiliates should look to partner and run activities with the #GearUps in your state. Even better if you can write your involvement into the 2018 calls when they come out. Build the relationships now.
#teachtheweb @humphd @soapdog @chadsansig @flukeout the #EDU106 final: https:/
Many of my students were using the Three things project for their final but I wanted to create another multipage portfolio option. I kept the pic of East Haddam in there for @chadsansig.
I was watching my students yesterday complete the final and thinking about looking for growth. I think for now I am most interested in how far a deviation it is from the template.
I probably should have moved the menu into the main content div and made it a horizontal table but when working with people marking up pages for the first I have learned to try and keep it simple. My stylesheet is already far too long.
I also could not get the JS to work properly as the menu was meant for a single page website that jumped between divs.
Now it is on to finishing my portfolio so my students have a mentor text.
@flukeout @chadsansing @omnignorant @humphd Had to go long form a little bit, but the thoughts have been chaotic.
After watching people fool around with Thimble for awhile it is a long time before they start asking for help on the code side. They point to the preview side and say, "How do I do this?" or "What went wrong here?"
So I am thinking what if the basic tutorials were more topical rather than sequential? So instead of start at line one and work down, it is organized into "How do I change the picture?" "What if I want to change the color of my name?"
The questions would be scaffolded based on a mix of use case and difficulty.
Just an idea. Going to play with the six word memoir project I am having my kids do.

I still need to figure out my CSS layout a little better. Especially getting display:block down. I basically used a lot of padding to get things where I wanted them to go.
