My common task for web design was to make a website from Dreamweaver and to apply all my knowledge from previous lessons. Every lesson that I learned in this class would help in some way to make my website. The topic I chose to make a website for was a famous surfer who died a little while ago, Andy Irons. I did this because my dad surfs and I would always go with him to watch him surf so I learned a lot about surfing. Andy Irons was one of my first surfers I learned about and I got to know a lot about him because he wad truly a legend in Hawaii. I also thought it’d be interesting to do a website on him because my best friends have family members that know the Irons family. When Andy Irons died, it was felt by everyone. He changed the game of surfing and everyone looked up to him. To learn how to make a website I did work from my class book and took tests on different sections of the book. This helped because each section wasn’t a lot of information but it helped a lot.

The most challenging part of this task would have to be remembering everything from all of the lessons during the semester. This was hard because there was a lot of information and if I made a little correction, it would be a big difference on the website. The least challenging part of the task would have to be making all of the web pages. This was easy for me because I got to organize the pages however I liked. I liked setting the pages up the way I liked; all I did was pick some pictures off the internet and just give a brief explanation on each page to better knowledge the reader about Andy Irons.

From doing this task I achieved standard 1.1 which stated that I communicated effectively using oral, written, and technological formats. I reached this by using my knowledge to make a website to show that I learned how to. I used Dreamweaver to do this. I achieved standard 1.2 which stated that I met proficiency in content and applied learning standards as outlined in the Rhode Island High School Diploma System. I reached proficiency by applying my knowledge to the website so that it was good enough to reach proficiency. I achieved standard 2.1 that states that I demonstrated the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration. I reached this by working on my website independently and using my knowledge and book knowledge to do this. By doing this task, it helped me develop as a person because I can use this to make other websites and to get information out of a book to help me make a website.
