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.

6th Graders completed their Desktop Publishing Unit with awesome product creations. While some students completed their Tri-Fold brochures, others completed alternative documents. Throughout each product, students had to demonstrate their proficiency in using the following Microsoft Word tasks: Page Orientation, Page Margins, Page Borders, Word Art, Font Style, Font Size, Bolding, Text Alignment, Graphics, Graphics Resizing, Graphic Frames, Text Wrapping, Text Boxes, etc. Most of these are advanced Microsoft Word features.
Students began the school year with little or no knowledge of Microsoft Word and in a few short months learned the basics, intermediate and advanced features of this Powerful Business program. I do not have any doubts students are ready to use Microsoft Word with confidence as they move into 7th, 8th, high school and beyond.
