    Main          Introduction in ICT suite using large display screen
 Activity(ies)    Introduce Publisher as a different program (from Word) that can
                  produce different types of documents.
                  Use screen to show that to make a calendar a template is used – that
                  choices of style can be made, (and that some use a lot of ink).
                  Children to make own selection of calendars.

                  Main activity in ICT suite
                  As the lesson progresses – demonstration and children to follow;
                  1. Select design style.

                  the children – which looks best?

                  [As time allows – look at other templates available]
Differentiation   Less able children may not complete all tasks independently and
                  may need support in their work.
                  Some children will be expected to include a wider range of personal
                  details and font styles to suit the task.
                  More able children will be able to change the original design and
                  insert different suitable pictures from clip art.

   Keywords         spell check
                    ignore / change
                    proof read.
 Key Objectives  key idea: that ICT can be used to correct mistakes
                    technique: to use spellcheck
                    consolidate and review work on this unit
Main Activity(ies) Introduction in class using IWB
                   Show spell check icon and tool dropdown menu. Explain how the
                   spell check works. to the class. Demonstrate how to use spell
                   check. Do they know what strategy the computer is using to guess
                   the word? (They need to understand the computer is quick, but not
                   as clever as them!) Repeat the spell check technique several times
                   and ask 2 or 3 children to demonstrate the process too. Discuss
                   homonyms and what the computer does (does not) do when these
                   occur.

                   Main activity in ICT suite
                   Each child is given time to practice using the spell check.
                   Task 1 Use a pre-typed article to use spell check and to proof read.
                   (After time limit bring class together to see who has spotted the
                   homonyms).
                   Follow a set of instructions to change style, size, bold, underline,
                   italics, etc to produce a corrected and finished piece of writing.
                   Discuss with the class what they have learnt during this unit.
                   Complete the self-evaluation sheets.

                   Plenary
                   Children review their learning in this topic and complete the Unit
                   Self evaluation sheet to be attached to their work in this unit.
 Differentiation   Differentiation will be by outcome as it is important to find out who
                   has mastered the main techniques learned in the unit
    Special        Pretyped text with errors.
   Resources       Instruction sheet for amending the text.
Success Criteria   I can use spell check but I recognise that spell check is an aid,
                   rather than a substitute for being able to spell.
                   I have edited a document to make it accurate.
                   I have reviewed what I can do after completing this unit.
