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.

Great Students; Great Work

After learning a handful of basic Microsoft Word Skills, students were able to put what they learned to good use.  Needing to display "Terms and Concepts"  associated with Microsoft Word, students chose from a list of 24 terms or concepts and created Mini-Posters for display.  They used this opportunity to demonstrate what they now know about Microsoft Word, Creating a Table, Merging Cells, Changing Font Styles, Aligning Text, Inerting and resizing Pictures, Saving, Printing, Etc.

Here are a handful of samples of what will be displayed around our room this week.

Great work on the Horizon

As students roll into week 5 of the year, 6th Graders are doing a fine job of keeping on top of things.  Over the past 2 weeks, due to various reasons, we have not had much chance or opportunity to complete any significant hands-on work with Microsoft Word.  They have been patient and anxiously awaiting our first graphic design project.

This week, students will learn many of the basic, intermediate and advanced features of the Microsoft Word Program.  Our Class Social Contract will have them learning about Margins, Font Styles, Size and Text Alignment, Tables, Graphic Images and Page Borders.  What they learn this week will be used for their next Graphic Project where they will create a Class Picture Set. In this project will continue learning other features of Microsoft Word.

Samples of their work will be ready for viewing soon.  Stay tuned and thank you for your patience.
