Listen to my intro before you click on!
Open up a Google Doc. Label it Graph of the Day with today’s date.
When looking at graphs, we’ll be guided by the following questions:
- What do you notice?
- What do you wonder?
- What’s going on in this graph? Write a catchy headline that captures the graph’s main idea.
- What impact does this topic have on you and your community?
Today’s graph is a visualization.
- Guiding Question: What/Why did Starbucks and Subway make such huge moves in the fast food game?
- Make some inferences on why/what might be happening here
10:00 WorkKeys Overview
Ms. Dickinson will be in to go over the WorkKeys Assessment that will be delivered to us next week during Tuesday / Friday classes. Please turn off your monitor and give her your full attention. The presentation of information will last no more than 10 minutes.
If the presentation finishes early, please send me your Usability Script with Performance tasks written in so I can print for you.

12:00 Performance Tasks & GitHub Webhosting
Instead of keeping your portfolio on the Cawd Server and risking deletion, let’s take advantage of the GitHub’s webhosting service – which is free for static type sites like the ones we create. The process is not difficult.
Follow along… We’ll be using a feature called Github pages.
Make sure you have your entire web folder on your desktop.
