In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.

In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

Week 12

Students did a great job on completing their "Class Picture Project".  We have been working on this project two days a week for the last three weeks.  The project is now complete and students are taking home a color copy of the product they created.

During our Proofreading day on Thursday students had an opportunity to play an On-Line game called "Kahoot".  This game consisted of 20 review questions relating to MS-Word and Tables.  Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation questions were mixed for extra challenge.

This week typing lesson was Lesson 10.
