I never mentioned anything specific about the photos themselves so I had to insert a paragraph about that. I also needed to rearrange everything so the order that information was given made more sense, such as talking about the main content first and then becoming more specific by discussing the photos and text that the content was composed of. During the writing process of this essay, I learned that one of my strengths in writing are giving descriptions and stating examples.
What I was usually missing was an evaluative claim that supported my evidence and then an analysis of it. On this page, everything is centered on an orange background with sky blue on the sides.
Fortunately, my class had a workshop dealing with peer editing paragraphs where my partner explained what kind of evaluations I needed and assisted me in expanding my essay.
I also received several peer editing worksheets that provided questions I could ask myself in order to analyze every piece of evidence I presented. This moved my paper from just having good descriptions to having a balance of examples, evaluations, and analysis.
By the end of this writing process, I realized that having a rough draft and then revising was something I somewhat enjoyed. The website introduces linguistic terminology such as grammar, morphology, phonology, semantics, and syntax These building are designated for specific schools and subjects.

Website Design Evaluation The ability to create and share your knowledge, ideas and opinions with the rest of the world at a click of a mouse has come to fruition. Websites have become a dynamic medium by which to express information, but there are many guidelines to consider when building a website. A web developer must take into account factors such as design, content, technical elements, and credibility.
Educators that use web design, as part of their instructional practices must be made aware of these factors, ensure that students understand the importance of making positive contributions to the World Wide Web, and be able to evaluate and provide effective feedback of completed websites.
Website Design Factors A well-developed website rubric that includes each web design factor mentioned and provides an easy to understand description of what the evaluator is looking for is essential to making the evaluation process a positive one. Tammy Payton has developed an easy to use rubric that is excellent for secondary school web design see appendix J for Website Evaluation Rubric.
Design factors include proper navigation, layout considerations, and level of engagement. These points are critical because even if the website contains noteworthy information, chances are a visitor will not stick around if the site is poorly set up.
A good website will provide visitors with access to meaningful information. Content must be well thought out and useful and other resources and references should be made available. The designer must ensure that all technical elements have been taken into account.

Issues With Websites In The Classroom With the great potential for learning and communication that the Internet offers, so too does the great potential for inappropriate use.
It is important for teachers to be aware of these issues and teach students to use the Internet responsibly. The Internet was designed to be an environment where one has the ability to contribute information freely. Unfortunately, we do not live in a utopian society where this idea is respected and there are many minefields on the information highway. One issue to be aware of is plagiarism.

To combat this issue one must closely examine the material they are evaluating.

The information on a website must be evaluated to protect students from those who would wish to alter accurate information for self gain or to impose their beliefs on others or to deal with accidental inaccuracies.
One concern many educators express is that students will find a website that has inaccurate information, but because it was on the World Wide Web, assume that it must be valid. There are a few basic tips to keep in mind when verifying accuracy. First, cross-referencing information on the Internet can be helpful in determining whether the information is accurate Burnett, This procedure is not foolproof as there could easily be another page that used the same incorrect information.
