I teach 8th grade U.S. History. In my class each student has a thin client computer desk. Our district did not supply us with lessons using computer applications so I created my own. I wanted my students to learn computer applications, how to create great projects for History using the computer. I found this also created a paper free classroom because the students were then able to email me their assignments. I then learned the best way to make computer assignments less stressful is by having them do assignments they are familiar with. Therefore, the first computer assignment I did was Picture Dictionary using the key words and vocabulary words from their textbook. I taught them how to use the “Draw Table” feature of Microsoft Word and use ClipArt as the picture to represent each word.
