Description

Class Experience

Students will learn which fingers should strike which letter keys. Students will learn basic functions of non-letter keys on the keyboard.  Students will practice typing letters and words to begin the memorization process of the location of the letter keys. Students will learn and type the most commonly-typed words, among other words. Students will learn timing and good typing habits. Students will be told what they can do moving beyond the class to build speed and accuracy on their own. 
My one-minute speed test result is 72 words per minute and I have had many jobs which require a lot of typing. I took a one-semester typing class in high school which I took very seriously (I learned on an old-school typewriter lol).  My mom went to secretarial school in the 60's and she types 90 words per minute! After I developed my 8-week keyboarding course she went through it and gave me some great advice on changes I could make to really embed these skills into learners minds for life, and many of those strategies and skills have been applied to this intro course! 
There is no homework, however I will provide links in the classroom after the class to typing games where they can continue to practice. They should be sure to use their color-coded keyboard charts until they have the location of the keys memorized.

Color-coded Keyboard Chart (provided in the enrollment email, also available in the classroom. A laptop or PC with a regular keyboard. Colored pencils or crayons
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will monitor students’ drills as they do them. We will do a mini quiz/contest to see if students understand the function of certain keys. Students will share with me their typing game scores (optional). 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class uses Typing.com and Freetypinggames.net. Learners are not required to make an account to play games on these sites. They will be provided a link through Nearpod or the Zoom classroom to play games that support the lesson. These sites require parental consent. 
Parents should be present (nearby) during the lesson to make sure learners are not having trouble with technology and are staying on task with the drills. This will allow us to get the most out of the 45 minutes of one-on-one classtime. 
We will use these websites: Nearpod.com, Typing.com, and Freetypinggames.net
