Make sure your name is on your work.

Read the directions carefully before you get started.

Keep your eyes on your own paper.

You’ve said it once, you’ve said it twice. You’re starting to sound like a broken record, and still, students continue to forget the basics.

This is often worse for typing teachers.

Students at the keyboard often need constant reminders about finger placement, proper form, and posture.

Tired of nagging? How about providing students with a visual reminder of proper typing form to do the reminding for you?

This week we bring you a clever idea for a visual reminder you can display in your classroom that keeps students sitting straight with their eyes on the screen.

Introduce it at the beginning of class and let the visual do the reminding for you!
