3 - 8 Keyboarding first nine weeks.
Key lessons for keyboarding are posture, hands in correct position, fingers on correct home keys and striking the correct alternate keys. I am not so much interested in speed as accuracy.
At this time, if students need to look at their hands occasionally, it is fine. We are still in the learning stage for correct fingers striking correct keys.
Later we will begin having accuracy tests and then some speed drills. For now, it is drill and practice with posture, hand position, and becoming completely at home with the keyboard.
