Web Site Developed by Karen Work Richardson, 8th grade computer skills teacher at Saint Clare Walker Middle School. (Don't be fooled: I have a Master's Degree in English with a concentration in Rhetoric and Composition. I'm really an Engish teacher in disguise. This just proves that English majors really can do anything!)

I do a lot of computer training locally for my own and other school districts through Rappahannock Community College and nationally for Classroom Connect.

My resume is on-line.

I wrote an article for the on-line technology journal From Now On that describes some of my early attempts at integrating computers into the classroom.


Web Pages

 As part of my workshops, I have put several pages on-line:



I Love Spreadsheets!

  Introduction to Excel: PowerPoint Presentation

Excel Lesson Plan Ideas

Fast Food Fun: Incorporates math skills and nutrition information

Graphing M&Ms: Incorporates math and English skills

 Excel Tools

Making A Word Find
(It's easier to use Puzzlemaker, but this helps kids learn to manipulate the columns and rows and format and lock cells.)

Making An Interactive Quiz
(This link takes you off-site to the Radford City Schools. They demonstrated their quiz at the 2000 VSTE Conference. They have lots of other great ideas for using your Office software more creatively.)
