    Home Row

    This lesson is the first in a series of five lessons that teaches basic keyboarding techniques, including proper finger placement and posture. In this lesson, students focus on the home row keys.

    • Student learns proper posture for keyboarding.
    • Student learns to identify touch keys.
    • Student understands reach keys.
    • Student learns to type basic punctuation (without using the Shift key).
    • Student learns to type home row keys.

    ·         This lesson uses diagnostic exercises, short drills and longer story challenges to provide students at any level of skill with individualized touch typing instruction that addresses their areas of weakness. Assign this lesson after students have completed the lessons on keyboarding and have learned finger placement. Unlike other EasyTech lessons that have a finite beginning and end, this lesson differentiates instruction as a personal keyboarding coach to continuously improve the speed and accuracy of students at any skill level. For this reason, do not assign it as part of a forced sequence class, create a separate class or group within the class and tell students when they may stop using the lesson. See the Teacher Notes tab for more information. If you have further questions, please contact support@learning.com for immediate assistance.
