About This Flyer
The Typing Web Unit
Course. By the end of the semester, you will be expected to complete all the lessons in the Intermediate Course. A helpful tip for this unit is to keep your fingers on the Home Row! It really helps because you have to coordinate your fingers to hit each key, and keeping your fingers on the Home Row helps you remember the patterns for each letter. I enjoyed this unit because it strengthened my typing skills very well.
The Coding Unit
The Career Locker Unit
The Haiku Deck Unit
Right after you are done with the Career Locker unit, you will start on the Haiku Deck unit. Like Microsoft PowerPoint, Haiku Deck is a slide presentation maker, in which you are allowed to choose a photo for the background for your slides, and add a title and text to them. You will be making a Haiku Deck about your dream job, and how you will get that job. This includes what college you plan to go to, what the tuition is, what degree you plan to earn, why you want that job, as well as some facts about the job. Your presentation needs to be at least ten slides long. You will present your findings to the class on designated presentation days. My tip for this unit is to put all your information into your own words when you place it into your presentation (it is required). I didn't do that and I had to redo my whole presentation!
