Want a stress free Christmas break? Need a new unit to use – ready to go?
This module is designed to run for one term and is based on the Word Processing aspects of the Word Environment (Word 10). There are 9 lessons (each lesson designed to take two sessions to complete). This is a PDF version of the PowerPoint Tutorial for those antisocial students who need to be by themselves away from the computer but doing the work. They are able to complete tasks in their workbook from the paper version of the tutorial. Giving the teacher some leverage.
It is designed specifically for lower ability year 7 students who are addicted to games on the internet, but know nothing about using word processing software. It allows the teacher to restrict internet usage while providing an interesting platform to introduce word processing topics.
It comes in four parts consisting of: 1). The Student workbook. 2).The student Homework booklet 3) The Word Environment Tutorial. 4). The Teachers Solution Book with answer keys and lesson resources in Doc format – which includes a basic scheme of work for 1 term. (There are short video links to resources from YouTube that can be downloaded to run independently on your schools intranet).
All the lessons can be accessed via the tutorial and students workbook is used as a writing frame. They are advised to check off their work as they progress. Numbers in the workbook relate to corresponding sections in the tutorial to facilitate autonomy in differentiation. The teacher can keep track of progress on the contents page of the workbook for coursework assessments.
All the quizzes and tests combine to form testing components for two testing points during the term; the teacher can also keep track of homework completion on the front of the student’s workbook. These can also be emailed home for parent appeasement.
The teacher solution book is basically a filled in version of the student workbook but with answer keys and lesson resources to enable quick marking, and spot testing of knowledge recall, especially during the plenary.
The homework booklet does not require the use of the computer for completion and contains 14 homework's – so, no excuses there.
Please feel free to download for free, the first lesson of the module – the workbook and relating tutorial, the homework booklet is free also.
We teachers know our joy and pain. Enjoy.
