12:00 HTML 5 Layout Elements
Websites often display content in multiple columns (like a magazine or newspaper).
HTML offers several semantic elements that define different parts of a webpage:
<header> Defines the header for a document or a section
<nav> Defines a container for navigation links
<section> Defines a section in a document
<article> Defines an independent self-contained article
<aside> Defines content aside from the content (like a sidebar)
<footer> Defines a footer for a document or a section

1:15 Why the <section> and <article> are useful HTML Elements
Before HTML5, web developers created a <div> to organize items on a webpage.
A <div> could have an ID or a class. ID’s can be used once. Classes can be used more than once. IDs and classes are helpful “handles” for CSS styling.
So, to minimize lots of divs and “divitis”, The <section> and <article> elements were added in HTML5. You don’t have to use them, however they are very useful.
The <section> element defines sections in a document, such as chapters, headers, footers, or any other sections of the document.
Your resume could be divided into sections as an example (Objective, Education, Work Experience, References, Awards)
Here is an example of the sections element in use from a page I built years ago. Use the inspector to see how each part of the page is divided into sections and how the sections are set up as IDs that aid in navigation.
The <article> element is a specialized kind of <section> in that it is independent, self contained block of related content.
The weather widget below is self contained and is just one kind of example of an <article>. In this case, one article houses a bunch of other articles. Tip, don’t think of the <article> element as a literal article.
Weather forecast for Burlington
Cloudy chance of meatballs
<article class="forecast"> <h1>Weather forecast for Burlington</h1> <article class="day-forecast"> <h2>November 10th</h2> <p>Cloudy</p> </article> <article class="day-forecast"> <h2>November 11th</h2> <p>Cloudy chance of meatballs</p> </article> <article class="day-forecast"> <h2>November 12th</h2> <p>Heavy meatballs</p> </article> </article>
Additional Practice with <aside> – Let’s do one together and even add some CSS for fun, here is the link for you.
Remote Days – Homework
Posted at the end of the second in class day of the week will be the remote homework you are to complete. This work will be due at the start of the next in person cohort meeting.
This homework be an extension of learning from the week and may comprise of assigned and independent projects.
Remember, you must be completing articles by 2:05 for each remote day (except Wednesdays) to count for CTE attendance.
#1. Your HTML5 Resume
Using the markup from today’s exercise, translate that into an updated HTML5 resume. You did something similar to this last year, however now you are using updated and improved content. Don’t worry about styling. Just get a digital markup of your most recent resume.
The process should be pretty easy considering you have a final version completed. This resume will be part of a portfolio we will be building as a class. Use your completed final resume as your reference.
You should use exactly zero styling. This exercise is all about using raw HTML. We will make it look pretty later with CSS.
Commenting is good practice. Comment out each section with a section start and end. Just for practice.
Remember your markup should be structured semantically using proper tags and indentation levels.
- Create a
headerwith a big ol’
h1stating your name
- Add an
addresstag with your address
- Add an anchor tag with your email and an
- Add an
hrtag below to give your header a nice big underline for emphasis!
- Create and use the
sectionelement for each section of your resume (Goals, Work Experience, Skills)
- Deploy the best heading elements that match your resume, bulleted lists, bold, italics, etc…
- Add a
footerto the bottom of your resume
Put similar information in the footer as you did the header only make it smaller by using tags that print normal sized text.
Don’t forget to make your email link clickable with a
Your html document will need a head tag. What we did in class. Review the Google Slide for meta content.
Create a New Folder on the Server. Name it WebPortfolio.
Upload to your Resume to that folder. Filename: htmlresume.html
We started this in class. Complete the aboutme.html page and upload to your newly created WebPortfolio folder on the server. You should now have two unlinked pages in that folder on the server.
Don’t forget to have all the meta data in your aboutme page head tag!
