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.

It's been 3 weeks since my last blog and the 6th graders have been hard at work.  In the creation of their first Desktop Publishing Project, students found themselves using Microsoft Word 2016 for the first time.  Being new to Microsoft Word, students learned to change "Margins", change "Font Style" and "Font Size", "Align Text", create a "Table", "Insert Pictures" and add a "Page Border".  In typing up the "Social Norms", students did a great job of capitalization, spelling and punctuation.  It was observed that "attention to detail" was much better with this class of 6th graders than has been seen in previous classes.  

A number of learning resources were employed along the way.  Interactive videos, Learning.com lessons, various class exercises and activities were completed as students learned and practiced their new knowledge and skills.

Here are a few "Social Contracts" created by students.  Stay tuned as we move into our "Class Picture" and other Desktop Publishing projects.
