    Course Content:

    "The purpose of this course is to assist students in making informed decisions regarding their future academic and occupational goals and to provide information regarding careers in the Business Management and Administration career cluster.  The content includes but is not limited to instruction in intermediate keyboarding, intermediate word processing, intermediate electronic presentation, intermediate computer hardware, intermediate Internet, introductory spreadsheet, and skills for business applications.  These competencies provide the skills necessary to ensure increased productivity and efficient utilization of equipment.


    Instruction and learning activities are provided in a laboratory setting using hands-on experiences with the equipment, materials and technology appropriate to the course content and in accordance with current practices."



    Course Materials:

    Our classroom is paper-free.  Which means you will not need a pencil and paper for this class.  All assignments will be posted and turned in using Microsoft Teams/Google Classroom and Moodle.  I will assign each student specific class codes during the two weeks of school. Course syllabus, daily bell-ringers, assignments, and exit tickets will all be posted to Microsoft Teams for student viewing. 


    Due to the nature of this course attendance is important for success.  It is your responsibility to check daily and make up any missing work if absent.  If you do not have access to a home computer, please see Mrs. Hallford to schedule makeup lab time before or after school.
