Pg 31Briefly introduce the topics that 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 47-48This can be considered an advanced topic for users at this stage; however, there may be someone in the audience who has been looking for a solution on how to paste information from one file to another and set up links between the two.There isn’t a need to spend a lot of time on this topic as there isn’t a large emphasis on this on the exam; be sure to demo it and let students go through the exercise to understand the concept and process. Be prepared with a number of examples of when you might use the Paste Special feature with a Word document. Some of the discussion may stray into intermediate or advanced skill sets, but you can use these as teasers for what students can look forward to in the next few lessons or in the Expert certification.
Pg 49If you’ve used CCI’s Word courseware, you will notice that this topic has been moved to Lesson 2 from later in the courseware with earlier versions. The main reason for the redesign was that this feature is a way to manipulate text (or other items) and should be included in the editing portion to demonstrate how to find or change items. As well, there is more demand for knowledge on how to use this feature.Be sure you review this section on your own prior to class because it has been enhanced with 2010, especially when it comes to pressing Ctrl+F. This no longer displays the Find dialog box but now moves to the Navigation Pane (as seen on the next slide). Once you’ve done a search for items, be sure to note the display in the Navigation Pane, and not just the document.Ensure you demo includes the different methods to find an item, although the Select Browse Object is not emphasized on the exam.
Pg 49-50Don’t spend a lot of time showing them how to search for graphic items as this will be covered in the Expert level. The focus at this level should be on finding text, usually with the purpose of replacing it with something else.It isn’t necessary to show each of the tabs during your demo, but do show how to enter the search criteria and note how Word highlights it in both the document as well as the Navigation Pane. In the case of the latter, discuss the advantage of this option as it shows only those paragraphs where the search criteria matches versus you having to scroll through the entire document to find the occurrence you may be looking for.
Pg 50Most people tend to find something with the intent to replace it with something else. If you haven’t introduced the More button prior to this point, you may want to have students look at the different options (also shown on next slide). This can give them an idea of what they can search for, as well as what to replace. Be prepared with examples of the types and why you might want to replace items, e.g., document has too many paragraph returns, too many spaces, wrong color on text, etc.
Pg 50-51Don’t spend a lot of time showing them how to search for graphic items as this will be covered in the Expert level. The focus at this level should be on finding text, usually with the purpose of replacing it with something else.As demonstrations for how to make find and replace more interesting, have them try finding and replacing formatting options. Be sure to provide explanations of items that some users may not be aware of from a grammatical side or proofreading side. For example, which dash is appropriate for the text, if the document is a speech? In this case, you will want to demonstrate verbally as well as onscreen so they can see the longer the dash, the longer the pause (as with a pause during the speech to emphasize a point or wait for the laughter). Demonstrate how reading highlight can draw attention to text.
Pg 53Briefly review the topics that 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 53As time permits, go through the questions with students, or choose to assign these for groups or homework review.
