An important technology skill all students should learn is keyboarding. This keyboarding curriculum, though a little more difficult than the Beginning Keyboarding Skills packet, begins with reviews of home row keys then progress to learn the "shift" keys, tab, question mark, and delete keys. Students will have more drills to complete. There are 15 total lessons that averages around 40-50 minutes to complete. This can be broken up 1 - 3 lessons per week depending on how often students use technology.
All lessons are intended to be completed on either a Windows or Mac computer. Lessons can be printed or submitted via email or uploaded to a teacher page. Students simply open the document, "Save As" with their names, and start the lesson. Included also is a slide show presentation introduction, rubric, and review.
All assignments have an example keyboard, clear instructions, and visual cues that show if students have copied and pasted work. The format lends to easily identification of keyboarding errors and intentionally requires students to learn how to save and open documents.
This packet is created for teachers either wanting to supplement an existing keyboarding curriculum, or as a continuation from my “Beginning Computer Skills – Touch Typing”. In addition, this packet is perfect for classrooms that have inconsistent internet, or instructors wanting a simple, effective keyboarding curriculum that requires no logins.
