Life Skills/Career Exploration
*We are experimenting in the kitchen. This week, we are learning how to cook dorm friendly meals, in the microwave.
We use EduTyping. This is a great program that grades automatically, by measuring the student's accuracy, errors, and words per minute. Each student has a username and password and is able to do his/her work from any computer. The program then generates a detailed report of each lesson completed.
We design and create the district yearbook from start to finish using Walsworth Online Design. This is a class for Juniors and Seniors.
We are learning personal financial planning, short, intermediate, and long term goals, supply and demand, and the difference between needs and wants in this chapter.
Elementary Special Class
Students in Grades Kindergarten through Sixth grade come to the computer lab and we use Moby Max software. It is a continuation of what the students are already doing in their regular curriculum, except they get to experience additional lessons on the computer.
This class is for 9th Graders. We are learning all aspects of Microsoft Office 2010. This consists of the following: Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, and Powerpoint.
