6-8 Computer Class / Keyboarding
.
Computer Class -  Students will be directied to do projects in class. They will be expected to finish
                             the project in class. It will be
 unusual to assign a project to be compled or done
                             outside of class. 


Keyboarding      -  Keyboarding instruction will use Google's "Typing Club" program.  This is a free
                             program.  Students will not need to have an account or need to sign-in.  I will
                             keep a paper record of the student's progress. Progress will be determined by
                             the student's ability to type without looking at their hands, accuracy, and speed
                             (after the keys are starting to be mastered).  Accuracy, without looking at hands,
                             is much more important than speed.  Speed will come automatically as the
                             fingering is mastered.  

                         -  There are many keyboarding programs available in the internet.  "
Typing Club"
                              is the one we are using in class.  However, the student can practice as much as
                              they like using the "
Tying Club" program or any other keyboarding program.
