When I was in the 6th grade our teachers would take us to the computer lab. My teacher would make us go to a website and practice our typing skills for 30mins.
This website I believe is very helpful. There are games to help the students type faster there are games like space invader, typer shark, and typing bubbles. This website looks like it can be very helpful when it comes to learning to type faster. Although u may learn to type faster it is no guarantee that you will type correctly.
