New Year, New Semester, New Curriculum Content
Happy New Year 2019!
As the holiday festivities die down and New Year’s resolutions are fresh in our minds, students and teachers alike are settling back into a new school semester. Here at EduTyping, our resolution is to continue to inspire students to have fun while learning to type. To start the year off on the right foot, we’ve got two brand new Reinforcement Lessons we’ve added to the curriculum.
On the Secondary side, there’s a new Making Headlines lesson titled Happy New Year 2019! As they practice their touch-typing skills, students will also learn about New Year celebrations around the world. From the ball drop in Times Square to the Spanish tradition of eating twelve grapes, this article highlights just a few of the ways we mark the arrival of a new year.
Over at EduTyping, Jr. try out the Making Headlines lesson titled The Grand Canyon’s Birthday. In this article, students will learn a bit about the history of one of America’s most popular national parks and one of the wonders of the natural world. While the Canyon itself has probably celebrated a couple million birthdays, Grand Canyon National Park turns 100 in February and is marking the occasion with a number of special events.
Both of these lessons will get students typing again in the new year with some relevant, timely, and fun content. To assign them to your students, go to Class Settings > Restrict Lessons and ensure that the lessons are selected.
Happy Teaching in 2019 and beyond!
