Progress -- that's the key word, or maybe Technology -- In 1991 when I began as an Adjunct at C.O.D. I taught a Data Entry class, but soon became the "Typing Teacher" teaching a typing class and yes -- on the ole electric typewriters, complete with instructions on how to center a line from the middle of your paper inserted into the typewriter! I was the last teacher to teach on the typewriters. We moved onto the computer keyboard for a few years and now in my current CIS005 class, typing is again part of the curriculum -- but -- students go online to a free typing site to practice and take timed writings. I think I've come full circle in 20 years!!!
