Type Write


Type Write is a beginning typing program. The home row (middle row of keys) is introduced first, then other letters are introduced one or two at a time, while continually practicing the letters already learned. There are three components used in Type Write: practicing letter combinations, practicing words, and practicing sentences. The sentences are generally in the form of a short story. For example, the sentences for letter "u" tell about a car: "The car's trunk clunks shut. The car's key turns. The car's engine runs. The car puffs fumes and charges ahead in the blinding dust." The use of meaningless nonsense syllables is kept to a bare minimum in this course; the emphasis is on typing actual words, and using them to make sentences that make sense. Instructions and an assignment syllabus are included in this eBook.
