This year there is a new class that is being required by the State for 8th graders to take. It is called Digital Literacy and it is exactly what it sounds like. The whole purpose of this class is to teach kids about computers and how to teach them. Mrs. Maughan the former english teacher teaches this class. She was looking for a fun, new change and was talking to Mr. Mcguire and they came to an agreement that she would take the job. Mrs. Maughan says that she thinks this class is awesome and can tell that the students do too. “Yes, it’s awesome.” she said “Kids love computers and I think that everyone wants to be better at them because they know how important they are besides just “Shell Shocker”. Which is a very popular game amongst the 8th graders. There are many great reasons as to why this class is necessary, and that is why Mrs. Maughan likes teaching it. There are tons of practical opportunities for kids to learn about technology and enjoy it. This is now a permanent and awesome class that kids will love taking!
