Have students learn to make themselves a profile page with pop-ups using JavaScript for an exciting and relatively fast way to get students engaged and programming.

  • If you need a fast way to get students engaged and programming, creating profile pages using HTML with JavaScripts is a great place to start. You can always add in CSS later to create greater interest and more programming tasks.
    • Show students web pages with NO content on them still have some code (i.e., etc.)
    • Teach students paragraph tags and heading tags ( etc.).
    • Teach students how to change colors.
    • Students are really excited to have pop-up boxes written in JavaScript as follows:
      • alert("I am an alert box!");
  • It was important to teach students how to add images to their web pages, because they found the text alone a bit boring.
