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. For a list of the various technology topics covered in this course, CLICK HERE for a PDF file. CLICK HERE for a Microsoft Word document.

On Monday, we started our next Microsoft Word document but we were side tracked a little and did not make as much progress as we would have liked. We will make more progress on it between Monday and Wednesday of next week. The students and I are looking forward to that.
On Thursday, instead of a Proof Reading Exercise, students had a chance to write a little. We will continue to use our Thursday's to sharpen our Proofreading and Writing skills.
Our Friday Keyboarding lessons are progressing as they should. Each Friday, we focus on a lesson from the "Type to Learn 4" typing system. Students were introduced to a grading schedule which will require increased speed and accuracy as we progress through the various lessons.
This week we focused on Lesson 3. Next week we will focus on Lesson 4. From the way it looks, students are meeting the speed and accuracy set and are on their way to earning a hundred points for the two lessons.
