Typing Time is a keyboarding software package designed for the Middle School beginner that combines the latest technology with a superior and time-tested method of instruction to provide an all-in-one program covering letter keys, numbers and symbols, and numeric keypad basics. Casey (main character in the software) leads students through the program as they experience animation, movies, and skillbuilding games. Typing Time teaches correct finger placement, builds basic skills, then works on speed and accuracy. Casey also leads the way through warm-up exercises and practice drills using the Typing Time full-featured word processor. Typing Time can be used in a standalone 6-9 week course or as a module incorporated into a semester or year-long computer course. The textbook includes 45 new-key, skill building, and application lessons that correlate to the software.
