Keyboarding and Internet Skills
Keyboarding is a very important skill in the world today. If you hunt and peck, you will not be as productive as the person who can move fluently on the keyboard using proper technique. The student will use proper grammar, punctuation spelling, and proofreading skills which are needed workplace and communication skills. Formatting skills using Microsoft Word will also be stressed so that the student will be able to prepare papers, letters, memos, and projects that will be necessary for the classes they take. The student will learn to use Internet search tools, e-mail, and file management skills.

Students are doing a simulation using all they have learned this semester.
We will begin MLA reports when finished with the simulation.
