This is a tip-sheet I hand out to students in grades 4 and up to remind them how to set up a page when writing an essay or report. It reminds them how to double space, and how to align to the left, right, center, or justify. Acceptable and appropriate fonts and font sizes are suggested. It also reminds them which key to use (tab) to indent the appropriate amount at the beginning of each paragraph. This is a great quick-reference for those students who are transitioning from turning in assignments with big, colorful, fancy fonts and pictures to a more formal and mature format.
This is also great to use as a lesson plan or guide when teaching students about word processing.
Applies to Word, Pages, Google Docs, Open Office, and more!
