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.

Positive Actions training continues. Students seemed to enjoy the program as they learn and participate in various activities facilitated by Mrs. Leal and Mrs. Stewart.
Students have submitted the first draft of their "Computer and Internet Safety" Desktop Publishing project. They will receive an evaluation from me for the purposes of making corrections and adjustments. Next week, students will be involved in a peer evaluation. next week students will have one last opportunity for adjustments and improvements before a final submission for a grade.
On Thursday, students had an opportunity to write and share things they are learning (about MS-Word) and how they feel about the project they are currently working. There was on an overwhelming sense that students feel good about what they are learning and had some positive things to say about the quality of their work on the project.
As always, on Friday we practiced our keyboarding. Students completed Lesson 6 of the "Type to Learn 4" program.
Students will complete their projects next week. Students are excited about their work being showcased on the big screens in our hallway, the Junior High as well as the Joecorona.net Websites.
