A Thesis Presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of Education of Harvard University in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Education.

Abstract
In this study I examine the acquisition of keyboarding skills by individuals of elementary school age. My introduction and review of literature trace the history of typewriting and keyboarding in American schools. Other literature is also probed, including studies of written language disabilities and their remediation, handwriting instruction, the underlying psychological processes implicated in the acquisition of typing and keyboarding skills, the process approach to writing, and the role of word processing in modern writing instruction. I discuss how these topics interrelate and affect writing skills development.

  1. Hey! Sounds like you’ve a great group going on here. I am unable to submit anywhere else due to the fact my password hasn’t arrived yet, but I desired to introduce myself here in this.
    Identify is Vallie; At present finishing up my Physics Significant at OSU, and can in all probability stay at OSU for my graduate studies. I’m a current convert on the YEC model and I’m fairly excited to find out much more about it — that is why I’m right here.
    I most likely will not publish for per week or so, as I’ll be investing my time reading all past messages attempting to get a feel for what has previously been discussed.
    I search ahead to debate and discussion.
