  • Pg 131Briefly introduce which topics will be covered in this lesson so students are aware of the new skills they will learn. Remind students also that all the information is available in the book as a reference so they don’t need to commit anything to memory or take notes.
  • Pg 137-138Objective 2.5Reassure students that entering text in a table is similar to entering text in a regular document or one with tabs. The big difference here is that if the text in a cell is long, the text will wrap inside that cell. This is a huge time saver over trying to figure out how to set the tabs so text fits in each column.Ensure your demo includes several long text entries so they can see how to manipulate the text. Also include a long text entry where they can press Enter within that cell to see how it changes the height of the entire row, not just that cell.

  • Pg 139Objective 2.6Go through the different options to select different parts of the table, pointing out the visual clues that appear for specific selections. You can reintroduce the Selection bar at this point for selecting rows rather than trying to see the arrow to select an entire row.For those who may not be totally comfortable with the mouse (or not as confident as they think), introduce the Select command so they can pick a command from there.

  • Pg 139Objective 2.6At this point, you can begin discussing ways you can modify the table, starting with changing the width or height of columns and rows. Most people will be interested in how to do this the moment they see a line of text that exceeds the column width and starts to wrap in the cell. If you had the student enter a long piece of text in one of your demos, it’s possible that the column width adjusted automatically, likely with the table created with Insert Table. In this case, the column adjusted automatically based on the option to Autofit the contents. However, in most cases, text will wrap within the cell and the user will want to make the column wider to accommodate the text.This is where you reiterate how it’s easier to enter all the text first so you can see which cells have the longest amounts of text, and subsequently, how wide do you want each column to be. Provide examples of when you may want the column to be as wide as possible (e.g., show the full name of the product, show full name), versus allowing the text to wrap onto the next line (e.g., description of item, address).The last point here is a handy tool to have when you have adjusted different columns and then realize they could be the same width. This is much easier than trying to figure out the exact width of each, or even using the Properties option to set these.

  • Pg 140Objective 2.6Give examples of when you may need to insert one or more columns or rows, e.g., more employees in the directory than you originally set up, need a row between two rows to add space in the form, etc.It is easier to use the options in the Rows & Columns group as the buttons are logically organized. Regardless of which method they use, remind students they will need to position the cursor where the new row or column is to be inserted and then make the appropriate choice from the ribbon or dialog box.The last point is a handy tool when you are entering lots of data and find you need more rows.

  • Pg 140-141Objective 2.6As with inserting, provide examples for why you might want to delete a row or column, e.g., data is no longer needed, you have too many rows or columns, etc.And just like inserting a row or column, they still need to position the cursor prior to activating the method to delete the row or column.
  • Pg 141Objective 2.6Students may already have an idea of how this works from when they used the Draw Table feature. This is another method to achieve the same task. You can refer them back to the Draw Table feature to use the Eraser tool to merge cells, or Draw Table to split cells.

  • Pg 143Objective 2.6This feature in many ways is similar to using Quick Styles for tables; the only difference is that here you are actually applying a style to your existing table, whereas the first option creates a table with this style for you to enter data.Point out how Word enables you to customize the styles, both existing and one you create to match your company standards.
