This Week in Computers

It has been a busy week in the Lakeview Computer Classroom! We've been working on some of the basic tips and tricks of word processing, and have, additionally, been practicing our keyboarding skills. We started the week with our first keyboarding test so we will be able to see our improvement throughout the trimester. The word processing tricks we focused on included double spacing, using bold, italics and underline from the keyboard, numbering, and using cut, copy and paste. The students have learned how to adjust a margin, so they can put headings on their papers that are left-aligned, even though they are in the upper right corner of the page. Hopefully, they will be able to use that skill for the rest of their junior high career whenever they have an assignment to do for any class.
