For this common task, I had to apply my knowledge regarding web site creation to design and build my very own web page. After choosing a topic, I had to create a blueprint using Microsoft Word, and then work with programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver and Flash to create a functioning web site. This task allowed me to use all of my skills that I acquired throughout the Web Graphics and Design course to create a page with links, pictures, sound, and color. The hardest part of creating this web page was making sure all of the minute details worked. Each link had to be the correct color, and link to the correct part of the site. If I missed one small link then I would have to delete several different links in order to find the root of the problem. The difficulty came through the tediousness of the task at hand. The easiest part of this task was accumulating information. I am a member of both the Mariner Band and Chorus, and have taken a Guitar course as well; therefore I had many pictures and knowledge regarding the material on which my site was based. From completing this task, I reached standards such as 1.1, 1.2, 1.4, 2.1 and 2.2. I met standard 1.1 by communicating through my written synopsis of different sections of the music department, as well as by using technological formats that are not used in everyday life to create a complex web page. I reached standard 1.2 by meeting proficiency in the applied learning standards regarding the Web Design class. I achieved standard 1.4 by maneuvering through problems by working backwards to find the base of the problem, and creating a strategy to fix my mistakes. I met standard 2.1 by independently honing my skills to create an individual web site. Finally, I reached standard 2.2 by creating a web site about a topic that stretches throughout the community, looking to fellow community members for pictures and information, and reaching out to a global community through the accessibility of my web site on a worldwide web. Completing this task has helped me develop new skills as a student and a person. I learned skills specific to the Web Design criteria, as well as time management skills. We were given several weeks to complete the task and I had to make sure to complete all the requirements within a certain time period. Overall this common task helped me expand my knowledge on a subject I would otherwise not have explored.

"... everyone was using tiny brushes and doing watercolors,
while Jimi Hendrix was painting galactic scenes in Cinemascope.
We are working in a field of mystical resonance, sound and vibration...
that's what makes people cry, laugh and feel their hair stand up ... "
~ Carlos Santana ~ (Inspirational Music Quotes & Sayings)
