The Computer How-Tos were created to help the students in my class use the computers independently. The idea was to make a "recipe" that my students could follow in a step-by-step fashion for various computer tasks. I require that my students "ask 3 before me" as much as possible, and so the Computer How-Tos are one way for them to ask for help before getting an adult. The How-Tos live in yellow folders next to each computer.

For several of the files, there are Boardmaker symbols added to assist with literacy. All of the pages have screen shots with arrows so students can make sure that their window looks like the window in the picture. If you choose to use these, you may need to make a few modifications based on how your school or home computer is set-up.
