This class is intended to provide students who do not know the keyboard with basic keyboarding skills. Using the keyboard is essential for success in a majority of required classes for graduation and for future college/career requirements. Keyboarding I will focus on development of proper keyboard technique. Students are expected to learn the keyboard by touch. During this course, students will learn basic formatting of word processed documents, such as Memos, Personal-Business Letters, Tables, and Unbound Reports.
