Students use Type to Learn 4 to develop proper keyboarding skills using the keyboards homerow keys to become touch typists.
For the first 9 days of the Keyboarding Unit, students will be assessed daily on their Touch Typist skills and their dedication to the task, and not on their speed and accuracy.
By the end of the Keyboarding Unit, students are to achieve a typing speed of at least 15 words per minute and 85% accuracy. Students will review basic functions of Microsoft Office and then use those skills to develop a better understanding of page layout basics and image manipulation to create a number of artifacts including the Shel Silverstein Times, a newsletter formatted document using two poems by Mr.
If time allows, students will also develop a set of images to be attached to a K'NEX Thaumatrope. CyberBullying is a hot topic right now, and is one that I consider to be of extreme importance for the well being of my students.As a parent and teacher, bullying is an issue that I take very seriously and am always looking for new resources.

This site serves as a resource for students throughout the course of the year they will spend here in the Middle School Design Lab.
Touch typing means that students can accurately type text on a screen without the need to look down at the keyboard. While these scores are not entered into the TAC Gradebook, I do keep a record in my classroom if you would like to check their progress.
It can also be a resource for parents to learn more about what their students are doing from over the course of the 30 day cycle they spend in my room.


Students practice their skills using Practice & Lessons in the Typing Tutor software.
Accuracy is the second most important thing (even though it is assessed equally to speed), as without good accuracy, a students speed will be hindered by having to correct mistakes.
All students are encouraged to find a comfortable typing speed where they can be the most accurate, and to increase their speed as they become more comfortable with the keyboard layout and the inability to see the keyboard layout due to the use of keyboard covers. Three scores will be entered in the gradebook based on the last 3 days of the Keyboarding unit. Contents of the Post Card will be written as if they have taken a trip there sharing what they learned while on their 'trip'. Work-based learning strategies appropriate for this course are service learning, field trips, and job shadowing.
Simulations, projects, teamwork, and FBLA leadership activities, meetings, conferences, and competitions provide opportunities for application of instructional competencies. The score you will see in the gradebook will be a combination of all of these categories, and will be an overall score.
