Course Description:

 

Using project-based instruction, students are introduced to the principles of business in the 21st

century while refreshing their keyboarding skills. This course should also help students to use

computers effectively in their lives, thus providing a connection of computer science and

business careers.

 

The goal of this course is to provide all middle school students with an introduction to the

principles of computer science, basic keyboarding skills, Internet safety and usage, and computer
