Introduction

I am currently an English Rhetoric major at WSU Tri-Cities. This is my first DTC class, and I am excited to learn about website design. I feel like learning all this new information about design will be a challenge, and further help my understanding of how websites use Rhetorical strategies to make their websites more effective.

Web Design Project 1: Website from Scratch

Eventually you will make the above heading a link to this finished project (Keep it a heading too though! The elements will have to be properly nested.). Then, change this paragraph so it gives an overview of how this project went for you. Our main goal for the Website from Scratch is to teach you the basics of HTML and CSS. You will write all the markup up yourself, starting with tutorial files your instructor will provide and then modifying them to suit the needs of your content. We will be concerned with content and design too, of course, but the biggest concern for this first project is strong understanding of how the markup languages HTML and CSS work to make websites. Can you also figure out how to add a relevant image for this section?

Web Design Project 2: Wordpress Website

In the second big design project for this class, you will modify the HTML and CSS of a wordpress design to make a custom website that is more advanced than what you could do by yourself. You will submit proposals for what the goals of the website will be. Again, eventually you will make the above heading a link to this finished project and change this paragraph so it gives an overview of how this project went for you. Can you also figure out how to add a relevant image for this section?
