Middle School Computer
Middle School -
In Middle School Computer class, students become proficient with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. They continue to improve their keyboarding proficiency as well. In sixth grade, students learn to make good choices when using the Internet, how to search the Internet, and how to evaluate websites. Their culminating activity is to create a PowerPoint on a topic they’ve researched on the Internet.
In seventh grade, students build on skills gained in sixth grade. Creating a diner menu in Microsoft Word is a favorite, as is the Family PowerPoint students create. Students scan and import pictures and insert a voice recording.
In eighth grade, the students create a School Days PowerPoint. It’s especially fun for them to look back at old pictures and recall memories of earlier years. The culminating project is a music video. Students select a Christian song and write, film, and edit a music video to fit the song.
