       Keyboarding . . . A skill that lasts a lifetime!       
What is Keyboarding?

"Touch typing is a life skill like reading or writing.  Students who have this skill will be better able to realize the full potential of technology and become more productive students and workers."  ~J. Hoggatt and J. Shank (authors of our keyboarding book)

State Framework Description: Keyboarding is a one-semester course designed to help students develop speed and accuracy by learning the touch operation of alphanumeric/keyboard characters. Emphasis is placed on the following: mastery of the keyboard with desirable keyboarding techniques; development of speed and accuracy; basic problem-solving applications of centering and arranging reports, letters, and tables; proofreading; formatting; and proper care of the equipment. Keyboarding is the foundation for developing entry-level skills for business (and other) careers.

Your grade will be based on:

Technique and Speed (1st 9 weeks)

Technique, Speed and Accuracy (2nd 9 weeks)

You will also have a bellwork assignment everyday that will be turned in at the end of each 9 weeks.

See "Grading Scale for MicroType Alphabetic lessons" and "Technique Check" below.
