Christian Keyboarding for the Christian School by Leanne Beitel is a straight-forward typing program created for Christian schools. It can easily be used by individual students as well.
The lessons first cover the basic keys. Then the program moves on to teaching basic word processing skills along with MLA and ALA report formatting, personal and business letters and tables. There are 43 lessons in all.
It does not have all the bells and whistles that other typing programs have but it also includes word processing skills. With this program, the student can get down to business, learn the material well, and move onto other things possessing a skill that will last him a lifetime.
The e-book we reviewed is for 6th grade and up which can be purchased for $15.95. Also available is an elementary program as well as other topic-specific instruction and package deals.
Please visit the Christian Boarding website to see samples and other products available. And you can read what other Crew families experienced with this product. My 13 year old daughter is finding it be very straight-forward and easy to use.
