Business & Computer Science Overview  

In sixth grade, Business & Computer Science students learn keyboarding using the touch-type method.  They begin keying letters without looking, using keyboard covers, and practicing proper posture and position.


Seventh grade Business & Computer Science students learn more about using word processing skills along with spreadsheet and presentation applications.  Knowing these applications should greatly enhance academic projects for students. Students build knowledge of computer and business related vocabulary.



Business & Computer Science students in eighth grade study Business Occupations and skills needed in the business world.  Parts of these studies include personal finance, entrepreneurship, researching various business occupations.  They also examine "soft skills" employers look for, such as: integrity, communication, courtesy, responsibility, computer skills, professionalism, flexibility and teamwork.  Students continue to build proficiency with office suite software as well as online tools.
