How to Make a Website for Parents Who Home School

April 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 187

A large number of people choose to not send their children to public school and choose to teach them from home. Many people who home school have come up with lesson plans and other ideas that other home schooling parents can benefit from. Setting up a website to share lesson plans, ideas, and information about home schooling is a great way for home schooling parents to easily share these things with other parents. Learning how to make a website for parents that home school can help ensure that information is organized and easily accessible to all visitors to the home schooling website.

The very first page of a website is called the main page or home page. The home page usually contains very basic information on what the website is about and what users can gain from exploring the rest of the website. Clearly stating what the goal is will help visitors get an idea of what they can find on the website. Also featured on the home page and any other subsequent pages are links to other pages available on the website. By clicking on one of the page links, visitors are redirected to the corresponding web page. This allows for visitors to the website easily navigate to the different pages to get the information they are personally seeking.

Subsequent pages on the website should be organized and focused on a particular area that visitors might be interested in. A page can be dedicated to providing general information about home schooling and how a parent can get started home schooling. This information is invaluable to someone who is just starting out and has little to no idea where to even begin. The experience and knowledge of the person creating the website can go a long way in helping a neophyte begin their own experience with home schooling. Links can also be added that direct visitors to other web pages that contain information and requirements specific to their state.

Another page can be focused on providing the necessary lesson plans for a given subject. One way to accomplish this is to create a single page with links to pages on the specific subjects. This requires a bit more work on the part of the website designer but will be a great benefit to those seeking out specific information. Another way to present lesson plan information can be to provide links to download lesson plans that visitors can keep and use when creating their own home schooling plan. Again, this may require additional work to create different documents that contain the specific lesson plans.

Organization of a website plays a huge role in how a visitor interacts with any given website. Learning how to make a website will ensure that a person creating a website is armed with all the necessary information to properly organize his or her website. How the content is presented on the website is entirely up to the web designer but should be done with the website visitor in mind.
