Lesson 3

Microsoft Word Formatting


In Lesson 3 we spend our entire class working on a Microsoft Word Document. For the beginning of the class, we review the basics of Microsoft Word: Menu bar, Title bar, and Tool bar. Once we've reviewed these basic elements of Microsoft Word, the different types of formatting options Microsoft Word are taught. Because there are multitudes of different types of formatting options on Microsoft Word, we only go over the most commonly used formats. These include Bold/Italic/Underline, how to change font sizes, and how to change font color and background color.
