With the ever growing requirements for students to type, including new common core writing standards and SBAC prompts, CUSD has chosen to move forward with typing.com as the standard program for next year.
Updates for Teachers Next Year
Teachers in grades 1st-6th grade can use the resources on typing.com for center work, computer lab time, or student free time. Secondary teachers can assign and use in all areas where students support is needed. PCC team suggestion was 20-30 minutes per week to help them build skills that they will need to be college and career ready. The program has sets of reports that let you know how your students are progressing and how much time they have logged. All of the features will be available during training this next school year as well as a set of "getting started videos" teachers can view on their own time.
