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.

6th Graders did well this week.  We completed our class "Social Contract".  This was our first document using some "Basic" and "Intermediate" functions of the Microsoft Word Program.

Here is a sample.

Once these are printed out in color, they will be signed by the students in each class period and put on display in the classroom.  For many students, this was a first experience for many of the Microsoft Word features we used.  They will add to their knowledge and skills as we progress through various and more complex projects to come.  

So far, in the first 2 weeks, students have earned 3 grades and I am really proud of each student for doing an outstanding job of staying on task and taking care of business.  In other words, their grades look awesome.   We also started our weekly proofreading exercises and Keyboarding lessons.  Next week students will be taking their first On-Line test. 

Stay tuned for weekly updates.
