Welcome!

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.

Week 19

This week, the students did a great job of engaging themselves in their study of new technologies. They are turning out to be great note takers.   The notes they have been turning in indicate interest in the subject and their note taking skills show improvement.  With more practice over the next week or two, 6th graders will be ready to handle any note taking challenge at any level.
This week, students had an opportunity to practice their writing skills.  They were given a document with five writing prompts and given the option to pick and choose any two topics.  We will do a number of various writing activities throughout the spring because 6th graders know that "Practice makes Perfect".

Keyboarding takes place each Friday.  The students do not mind the lessons because they know keyboarding skills are important.
