Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The computer instructions were great. The Explorer's Guide with the Objectives, Trail Markers, Apply It!, and Check Point all fall within guidelines for student learning. There were many opportunities for learning each application. The use of positive comments "Great Job." "What a super looking chart." That will definitely excite the middle school student.""I especially found the Project Skills Review of enormous value.The Ergonomics tips were the BEST. This was my first opportunity to learn Ergonomics at such a professional level. The information is incorporated in the student text. How wonderful." -- Bonnie W. Brown, Clinton Junior High School, Clinton, MS

"The manuscript covers all of the skills the middle school student will need to complete school assignments in a very professional manner. It is also an in-depth look at skills employees need in a work related setting in a fun and easy to understand format. The skills learned in the word processing manuscript could actually be applied to an entry-level position in the business world. The "trail marker" describes what the student will be doing and the "apply it" gives the student numbered, easy to follow instructions to complete the task. Each trail marker is short, and easy to read. The teacher guide corresponds with each trail marker, giving the teacher suggested dialogue to present and emphasize what the student will be doing. " -- Barbara Beasley, Taylor Middle High School, Pierson, FL
