Project 3:  Preparing Administrative Documents

The activities in this project require students to do critical thinking in determining basic setup choices, including inserting lines, placing graphics, and making font choices to enhance the visual appeal and readability of documents. Basic Word form features are applied through the insertion of drop-down box fields and text from fields. The application of forms continues through protecting the form and filling in the form with specified selections. Merge activities include merging using an existing Excel file as the data source and using a student prepared Word table as the data source. Merging is applied to lists as well as mail. Single-page documents and booklets are prepared. Work on the Employee Manual continues from previous lessons, allowing students to prepare documents over a period of time where stopping and starting are required. Creating an AutoCorrect entry is encouraged.
