Mastery of Keyboard operation is assured in this class, students will learn to "touch type" and become proficient in this skill. Each student will be assessed at their current typing level and then individual typing goals will be developed. Students will be given a timed test at the end of quarter to see what their typing speed is, along with their accuracy percentage. We will be working out of a classroom book and a program on the class computers. Students will be given due dates and then can work at their own pace to complete the required activities. If a student misses class they will need to make up their missed time during open labs, before school, after school, or lunch time. All 7th graders will complete Keyboarding and this will give them the basic skills needed to be successful during the rest of their time at Pomeroy Jr/Sr High School and also in the world of work. I will work at breaking poor habits students have developed and expect students to work with me and give their best effort to learn touch typing.
