Class Description

The class is interactive and project based to provide students with hands-on experience with various MS Office products and Google docs to learn the computer skills middle schoolers will need in high school. The emphasis of projects will be the skills needed for academic success in written papers, oral presentations, basic calculations, and data analysis. The first semester will work primarily with work processing and academic papers, using MS Word and Google docs. Some of the topics we will cover include fonts and formatting, MLA formatting, and bibliographies. The second semester will address PowerPoint and presentations as well as an introduction to Excel spreadsheets for calculations and data analysis. Students will be encouraged to give an oral presentation at least once each semester.
