This assignment focuses on creating a resume. The video will first teach how to write a resume and what sections should be found in it, and then it will go over formatting tips. Students are given more freedom to create a resume unique to themselves. This lesson can be taught by video, or live with the video as a supplement for late or absent students.
This series of assignments will take students (8-12th grades) through Word 2010. Each assignment is accompanied with an instruction video, a starter assignment, and instructions. The video will teach the student how to use each feature, but will not necessarily take them through the actual assignments step by step. Students watch the video and then complete the assignment using what they a have learned. The Word series will also teach basic document creation--Reports, memos, business letters, and resumes.
This method allows you to "flip" your classroom--they may go at their own pace, re-watch sections they are confused on or fast forward what they know, while the teacher is free to walk around and answer questions, spending more time with the students who need it.
