#59: Reading + Keyboarding = Success

If students become wrapped up in what they’re reading, they’ll type faster. I’ve provided two examples below, but use material you’re teaching in class, literature books they’re reading or poetry. They’ll forget they’re searching for keys as they become enthralled with the story.
