Mr. Rogers from Rowland HGHTS CA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a subscription to Typing Club to develop crucial keyboarding skills.
My students are 9 and 10-year-olds who have moved from primary to upper grade. The bar is set higher in writing skills. Rigor, endurance, and accuracy in telling a story with skill and confidence are several tools they need in their essay toolbox.
While we get started with our essays the old fashioned way: on paper, new technology demands a new skill... typing quickly and accurately.
More assignments--as well as state tests-- require confidence and speed on a computer keyboard.
I skipped typing class in high school. "As an architect, there's a skill I'll never need," thought the 16-year-old me. No computers, no Internet, no need! Guess again! I'd like to see that my students don't face that regret. Your donation to this project will give our 4th graders lifelong skills to express their ideas, share their research, and confidently complete state testing essays on a computer.
A subscription to Typing Club offers customizable, high-interest typing lessons to empower our 9 and 10-year-olds to express their brilliant ideas and wonderful research in a readable format on paper and online.
This is a tried-and-true program which has helped my previous classes; I'd like to see the same skills developed with my 2018-19 class.
