Youths Learn Typing
Skills For Future Use
What was typing about? Typing taught students how
to type and to know the keyboard. Students first
learned about "homerow". This consists of the letters
A,S,D,F,G,H,J,K,L, and , "and A student then
learned what letters the finger must move up, down, or
sideways in order to read other keys.
Typing was a business oriented class. It allowed
students to learn speed and accuracy which is
required for a secretarial job. Typing may also be used
in one's day to day life for typing term papers, essays,
book reports and much more. In Mrs. Judith Roeske's
typing class students had timings to see how many
words they could type in a minute with one or no
errors. Mrs. Fioeske also had competitions between
classes which encouraged students to do well. Typing
may not sound like a fun class, but it could turn out to
be a fun and a rewarding experience.
