I recently had the pleasure of observing a teacher who had a unique approach to engaging students in lessons:
She pitched every assignment as if it were a mystery to solve.
From science experiments to determining the meaning of new vocabulary words, students were tasked time and again with “solving a challenging mystery”.
And the results were incredible!
Students approached every problem with a keen enthusiasm for “figuring it out”.
This teacher had tapped into the wealth of curiosity that students possess in order to help them approach their school work with excitement and resilience.
How could we take her approach and apply it to typing?
Introducing…. Keyboarding Cryptograms!
Cryptograms use letter substitutions to create a secret code.
In cracking the code students will not only be using their best problem-solving skills but will be refining their touch typing abilities as well.
So what are you waiting for? A mystery awaits!
