In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. All students want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer. Our students will certainly be provided a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as they learn and master a wide range of 21st Century Skills.
In this year’s “Technology Applications” class, students will learn and master various topics associated with computers and technology.

This week, students will learn many of the basic, intermediate and advanced features of the Microsoft Word Program. Our Class Social Contract will have them learning about Margins, Font Styles, Size and Text Alignment, Tables, Graphic Images and Page Borders. What they learn this week will be used for their next Graphic Project where they will create a Class Picture Set. In this project will continue learning other features of Microsoft Word.
Samples of their work will be ready for viewing soon. Stay tuned and thank you for your patience.

One on Self-Improvement to help with the necessary Soft-Skills needed in today's workplace. Another is a new coding or programming module where students learn Scratch Programming and game creation.
