The first 3 weeks of this project is building the necessary computer skills to complete the research component. During the students regularly scheduled computer time, they learn to use the command key to copy, cut, & paste. In addition, they learn to go between two fields. These skills were introduced through modeling and having the students physically make the keyboard strikes in the air. All of the excercises were divided into modeling, class practice, and on your own. The students would have multiple experiences with both Appleworks 6 and the Internet before starting the actual research project. Much of the experiences will be independent in order to provide hands-on learning where all students are active in obtaining the technology skills.
Other resources such as the templates and Internet sites were introduced on an as needed basis.
