We’ve learned all the keys on the keyboard now, so my Keyboarding classes are ready to start practicing and memorizing the “High Frequency Words”, the most common 100 words used in business correspondence.
Luckily (sort of) the District person (from another school district, not mine) who taught my class last summer supplied us with Powerpoint presentations for the kids to follow. I’m on the third set, #51 through 75, and the last five words in the presentation, in the order they show up, are:
I almost plotzed when I saw those words come up on the screen. Fortunately they show up one at a time, and the students at the school I’m at are quite a bit more naïve than I’m used to. Not a single one, in any of my 3 classes, said anything or even gave a snicker, and we went through the set at least three times each class.
On the other hand, the teachers I showed it to all laughed.
