After this, students will be shown a basic sample of a HTML document, they will be asked to use their prior knowledge of concepts of programming to explain the different parts of the document. This should be done initially on their own in their books, after which both the students and the teacher will label the different parts of the diagram together; students will be encouraged to note the corrections in their books. Students will be questioned, after the previously mentioned activity, about where HTML documents can be created this is in a bid to pull knowledge from the students and help them think. Their responses will be noted on the board and others will be added to it if necessary. Students will be told that for this class we will be using notepad and they will be asked to open notepad. They will be introduced to tags, a major component in creating webpage what they are and the do’s and don’ts of creating tabs. They will also be introduced to the different types of tags, how to use them and what they do. After this students will be given a basic sample of a HTML document to modify to reflect various styles and attributes. Culmination (110Mins) After the development of the lesson students will be told to create two web pages on any topic in IT one page should contain notes (the content for the topic) and the other should have questions on the selected topic, these webpages should be inter linked. They should also include different font styles, attributes, images, a YouTube video and background appropriate for the topic selected for the webpages they are creating.

Pascal statements will be written on the board with Syntax errors. The students from their interaction with programming should be able to highlight and correct these errors. 3. The students will again from their homework activity give definitions for Logic Errors and Runtime Errors. 4. The teacher will provide standardized definitions for the concepts and explain each clearly. 5.
