The Week Ahead:
About this course:
Business Information Managment II is an upper-level course recommended to students in grades 10-12 who have already taken and passed Business Information Management I, the required prerequisite. This class offers students the opportunity to become experts in Microsoft Office products and earn master-level certifications in Word, Excel, and others.
In this course, students implement personal and interpersonal skills to strengthen individual performance in the workplace and in society and make a successful transition to the workforce or postsecondary education. Students apply technical skills to address business applications or emerging technologies, create complex word-processing documents, develop sophisticated spreadsheets using charts and graphs, and make an electronic presentation using appropriate multimedia software. (To view the Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills standards for this course, please click here.)
As most parents know, Microsoft Office is the standard for businesses, industries, and colleges. While BIM used to be a graduation requirement in Texas, sadly this is no longer the case. In the workplace, my former students become the most relied-upon (and have the most job security) because they may be the only one in the office who knows how to use Excel, or create a professional presentation for stakeholders. How lucky you are that your child is taking this course!
Be on the lookout for my classroom newsletter that will be emailed to parents at least every other week. In it you will find out what we've been working on this week, upcoming topics and due dates, and questions to ask your child to supplement their learning!
