									Assignment 2– Word Processing, Mail Merge, Using Drawing/Picture Tools
(To submit in assignment 2: Submit written reflection and a screen shot inserted on
the page of the designed letterhead/mail merge letter and a second screen shot of the
address list. (Alt, PrintScrn).

1--Reflect on classroom integration ideas for word processing tools and PowerPoint.

2--Explore Office Button        ( Show Readability Statistics, turn on Developer tools)
3--Explore text, drawing and picture tools
  (drawing and picture formatting and tools; text wrapping, clearing Word formatting)
5--Design a ‘letterhead’ and add a mail merge letter.
4 -Create a directional handout with ‘Screen Shots’ as part of a brief ‘teach the class’
(an item from Word or Powerpoint or other program)
(ex: I’m making a math worksheet. How do I write fractions? How do I make the document default to
single space? What is the ‘reading level of the doc?
I want to personalize a letter to send to 20 people. How do I do a mail merge? Other ideas….._
As part of your written reflection, consider the impact of word processing on education.
Think about strategies to incorporate word processing into teaching and learning. What
are some of the functions of word processing software? How will you instruct your
students to use this software?

Think of integration ideas such as
- prewriting, outlining, drafting for easy editing;
- ability to share files for collaboration, reviewing and tracking features;
-creating a form; using the mail merge/database to create personalized correspondence;
-easy page numbering and adding headers/footers for formal papers;
-inserting pictures, clip art, shapes, smart art, to caption and collage, enhance documents
and presentations;
-hyperlinking to images, charts, diagrams, documents, spreadsheets, and web sites;
-saving documents in difference formats—PDF (Adobe Portable Document File), a Web
Page, Rich Text (removes formatting codes; can be read in multiple word processing
