Working Weekend – writing another textbook
Posted by markhwebster on September 24th, 2012 • 0 Comments • Full Article
I’d hoped to get out for a day of climbing this weekend, but couldn’t find a date. Turns out that was a good thing. It forced me to stay home and work on lesson plans. I created 22 new pages of content for my web classes.
I’m writing these from scratch, and the finished product looks like a book. Pictures and arrows, numbered pages and bulleted lists.
I did not want to create entirely new curriculum, but of the 3 books I purchased on Responsive Design, HTML 5 and CSS 3, none were suitable for use in a college classroom.
On the plus side, I love to create things, and writing textbooks is very creative. By the time I’m finished, I will have written a unique 100 page text book that I can use for a few years…until the web changes again.
