In computer class at Grace-St. Luke’s, each student will use the Microsoft Office Suite to create a variety of documents and presentations. All students will complete basic and advanced internet searches to answer specific questions. Students are also introduced to the internet as a research tool. They will work to produce a short movie using the iMovie application and GarageBand to compose a short audio project using built-in audio loops along with externally attached microphones and USB keyboards. We will also use keyboarding exercises to develop typing skills. Students will have the opportunity to share their various projects with their classmates throughout the year. Assessment will be based on daily class participation, in-class assignments, and week-long projects.
