  • 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 144-145Objective 2.6You may want to include a quick discussion about the gridlines and using them as a guide or the borders instead. There may be occasion when you want to modify the borders to different colors (as seen on these slides), or to have no lines as all, especially if you are using shading (fill) with the rows and columns.Open the discussion with the class about what enhancing the appearance of the document can mean. For instance, if Microsoft offers you specific styles and colors, shouldn’t you just automatically take advantage of these, or should you look at only setting up your own standards (“less is more”, “keep it simple”). Include in your discussion that there is no right or wrong answer to this – it really is based on any standards in place with company documents, or in most cases, who your audience is. You may want to mention the rule of “if it looks too busy to you, it may be too busy for the audience”. The focus should be on the message of the content, not how many colors or effects you add. Enhancements should be exactly that – they make the content stand out more.
  • Pg 147Objective 2.6Mentionthe alignment options learned previously for text and discuss how they apply to table cells as well. The new feature enables you to align text vertically as well as horizontally, thereby giving you another way to enhance the text when there is more than one line of text in specific cells. However, ensure you discuss how you should look at the report with an objective eye and decide whether all data in a row should be vertically centered or if would be best to align the contents at the top instead, as seen in the following (files available you in the gallery to create your own slides):
  • Pg 148Objective 2.6Provide examples of when you may need to convert a text based report into a table format, e.g., simple monthly report now expanded to include twelve months and converting the text to a table makes it much easier to set up new months as well as entering data.Many students find that they tend to move to this format for any report with a large amount of data set up in columnar format, similar to accounting or financial reports. Given that the formatting is applicable when using tables, focus can be placed on entering the text as if using a spreadsheet program.Provide a tip about watching for the number of tabs between the columnar text as each  will become a new column when the text is converted. This is an example of why it is important to set up the tabs correctly before doing any type of conversion. Encourage students to turn on the non-formatting characters to review the text report before automatically selecting the text for conversion to a table. This can save a lot of time for edits afterwards.

  • Pg 149Objective 2.6Provide examples of when you may need to convert a table into text format such as converting a financial report created in Word into a text format that can be used in Excel or for someone who doesn’t know how to use tables in Word (familiar with tabs though).Discuss the different types of separator characters and how these are common for database or spreadsheet reports, no matter who makes the program.
  • Pg 150Objective 2.6Provide examples of when you may want to sort the data in a report, e.g., glossary entries, list of contacts, etc. Often it isn’t necessary to convert a report into a table format just so you can sort it. Word provides a feature that can handle the sort, although it does rely on the user to provide the guidelines on what and how to sort the information.
  • Pg 150Objective 2.6Sorting information in a table is very similar to sorting regular text with the main exception that most tables have column headings set up to identify the information. This becomes very handy when in the Sort option as you can then see these column headings instead of trying to “count” how many columns over is the column you want to sort by.
  • Pg 153Briefly review which topics were covered in this lesson so students are aware of the new skills they learned. Remind students also that all the information is available in the book as a reference.
  • Pg 153As time permits, go through the questions with students, or choose to assign these for groups or homework review.
