The 9th grade Basic Computer Applications classes at SMS are working hard and learning the basics of Microsoft Word. Students do various applications in Word such as placing articles in columns, how to change colors and fonts, place drop caps, etc. They have also learned to cut/copy and paste pictures, tables, etc.
Knowing some of the basics helps them in on-demand writing and open response questions. We practice these items on a weekly basis in class. The students are improving in these areas.
Students are encouraged to help each other in peer tutoring during class time as well as assistance from the teacher. Mr. Sparkman’s classes are continuing to learn the basics for computer applications to help them to get ready for more in-depth classes in the years to come in high school.
