Lesson 4

Cut/Copy/Paste in Microsoft Word



During Lesson 6, we learn how to organize and reorganize written texts. We also learn how to spell check in order make sure our document has correct spelling and punctuation. After learning how to edit their document, students learn how to cut, copy, and paste text. We learn some of the different ways this can be done, and we discuss why people would want to cut, copy, and paste. Students are able to practice individually during different activities in order to truly master this skill. Towards the end of class, and once the students have mastered cut/copy/paste, we learn how to do the exact same thing but with photos. We end the class with a fun, final class activity practicing these newly learned skills.
