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.

Students complete Module 1 (Microsoft Word and Desktop Publishing)

Principles of Information Technology


Career and Technology

Students spent the last two weeks working through the first of many Self-Learning Modules.  Module 1 (Microsoft Word and Desktop Publishing) had students completing a number of self guided activities resulting in the creation of high quality Social Contracts and Class Picture Projects.  Starting the module with very low Pretest scores, about 95% of students experienced a 60 - 70 increase in their Posttest score at the end.

Each year we begin with a couple of projects designed to introduce students to Microsoft Word and its Visual Design capabilities.  This year, we decided to try doing this same project with a Google Document.  We quickly learned that a Google Document IS NOT Microsoft Word.  Even with limited table and graphic capabilities, students did a fantastic job of creating this year's Class Picture Project.  Here are samples created by each class period.
