In Typing Nouns the student had the word example in a preview box directly above the type-in text box. Typing Nouns II has no preview box and requires the student to look back and forth between a printed text card (w/ picture) and the computer screen.
Students using this program should already possess the prerequisite skills of; clicking into a text box with a mouse, scrolling up and down a page with a mouse, and typing whole words (under an example word) and correcting/deleting miss-spelled words.
The initial prompting level for this Typing Nouns II could be handing the student the text card for the first noun word on upper left hand side of the screen, and each subsequent word going left to right, top to bottom. As the student’s skills develop he can be given a stack of cards in random order and directed to place each completed word’s card into a small “finished box”.
Included in this program are cards without the picture. When presenting these cards simply read the word to the student. This step in the task analysis will aid in helping the student to further associate the written word with the object.
