Keyboarding is an essential skill in today's world.
Students will learn to "touch type" (no looking at the fingers!!), and attain a minimum speed of 15 words per minute--many students will reach a much higher rate.
In addition to using the touch method, the following areas will be covered: MLA (Modern Language Association) reports, personal business letters, outlines, and memos. We also have a unit on Coding using "Scratch." The Appalachian Trail is integrated into the Keyboarding curriculum throughout the semester
Proofreading is stressed throughout the course.
All students are required to bring their planner AND a pen and/or pencil each day.
