All students in 4th to 8th grade have access to Typing Club. Typing Club teaches students "touch typing" and requires them to use all 10 fingers to type. Students took a typing placement test in Digital Media class and were placed within the program. Students can unlock more lessons the more they work.
Students are encouraged to cover their fingers with paper while they are typing so they will learn to look at the screen while typing. Ideally students would also work on typing at home when available as they best way to encourage the muscle memory required is to type often (five to ten minutes) daily. Students can access Typing Club the same way they get to Myon by using Clever at cps.edu/clever. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Herman.
The Movie Magic program sponsored by CAPE has more spaces available due to expansion of the program. If you want your daughter or son to learn the art of film making and movie scoring please contact Mr. Bradford asap. Movie Magic meets afterschool on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
