In the meantime, our technology training consisted of a couple of activities to help students learn, understand and master various Microsoft Word features, such as: WordArt, Resizing and Rotating Graphic Images, Text Boxes, etc.
Thursday we completed a Social Studies proofreading exercise relating to the U.S. Constitution. Students used Microsoft Word to insert "Shapes" to highlight errors in the passage. Once all the errors were identified, students were challenged to retype the passages free of spelling, grammar and punctuation errors. Students used their eBackpack accounts to submit their assignment for evaluation and grading.
On Friday, we worked on keyboarding by completing Lesson 5 of the "Type to Learn 4" program.
As another week comes to a close, I decided to show some student work. Watch the video to see what has been happening in the class so far. The video is also available at Youtube through my class website. Click here.
