HTML and CSS templates for learning, teaching

I have made a GitHub repo containing HTML and CSS templates for beginners.

An entire GitHub repo can be downloaded by clicking the “Download ZIP” button on the right-hand side of the main page.

As a teacher, I find it’s very handy to have files ready to open and show to students who are having trouble with one aspect of CSS or HTML. I show them the code, we talk about it, they usually get a clearer idea of how it works. But digging around for files on my hard drive is time-consuming and not always successful. Writing a new stylesheet from scratch takes time.

So this collection of simple problem-solving (and problem-illustrating) files will be useful to me in many situations. You can use it too.

Baby Steps in Data Journalism
