Description

You may think it impossible to find a keyboarding curriculum that creates accomplished typists from the skimpy forty-five minutes a week you can devote to keyboarding. You teach what you can, but it always seems to be the same lessons-hands on home row, good posture, eyes on the copy. You wonder if it's making a difference.

Every year, you promise it will go better and then it doesn't. You're thinking of giving up. You have lots of friends who hunt-and-peck as adults and are doing fine. Does it even matter if students learn to touch type?

Yes, it matters, and there is a way. It requires a plan, faithfully executed, with your eye relentlessly on the goal, but if you commit to that, it works. In this book, The Essential Guide to Teaching Keyboarding in 45 Minutes a Week: a K-8 Curriculum, I'll share a keyboarding curriculum for K-8 that I've seen work on thousands of students. You'll find directions on what to do, how and when. Consider this the keyboarding version of Strunk and White's Elements of Style-everything you need in a short 110 (give or take) pages.
