This learning guide prepares learners to further develop their ability to use the word-processing program of their choice. The learners learn to modify text, to insert pictures, to create tables and columns and to print their work using more complex layouts. The approach focuses on the underlying logic common to most word-processing software and the activities support learners in developing appropriate skills with their software.
Each chapter includes a description of concepts, an explanation of the associated commands, where they can be found and how they work, practice exercises, a suggested work method, a review activity and a self-check quiz.
