I went to the 9th grade orientation this morning. During the parents Question and Answer portion at the end, a mother asked if the high school offers a typing class. The answer is no it doesn't.
The students are expected to type everything for the English class...everything. I took a typing class in high school and I can type 50 words per minute like the mother who asked the question. My son two finger types just like her son which is not the way we learned in high school. Not fast enough to type four page assignments every night for homework.
1. Do you know of any online typing programs?
2. Did you take a typing class in high school?
3. Does your child's middle/high school offer a typing class?
