PLEASE: BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THIS, see my free sample with video explanation on how I use it in my classroom!
This packet was created by me in hope to get students to be in charge of their own growth and excited about the progress they have made. We used to use "All the Right Type," and they dreaded typing, and the lessons were so long that they weren't getting the most out of them. Like I said please download my free sample with complete explanation before you commit!
Packet #1 includes
-15min how to video with real samples and results.
- pre test for lesson 1-5 which is: "f, j, d, k, s, l, a, ;, and shift keys" (homerow + shift)
- 5 pages of differentiated work dependent on their level of skill. They decide their route. Will they go mastery? normal? or below normal? (for their skill level) Each path has equivalent reward system.
What students are saying:
"I love this because if I work hard, I get rewarded... but if someone else isn't working hard, they have to keep working until they push themselves like I am."
"I don't even care about game time rewards... look at my score going up!!!"
They also don't come in dreading typing!
In my class I allow the rewards to carry to next class period so sometimes they are playing 4 mins or 10mins of games first and this reminds them to work that much harder for me! IT HAS BEEN AWESOME!
***Also important: Please download the sample video because the video in the zipped file doesn't contain sound due to no built-in microphone... yes I'm serious and although it is a great mime show... don't waste your time. I could have re-uploaded everything but since the video is available, and you likely/hopefully watched that before downloading this... I wasn't worried about it. Please excuse that little mishap and enjoy your new curriculum and saving over $1000 dollars!
