Teachers Will:
• • •

Explore the availability of MS Publisher’s templates: newsletters, calendars, brochures, and business cards. Create a business card to provide parents with current information about themselves and their classes. Design and describe our school by publishing a brochure about the building in which they work (curriculum, AYP, extracurricular activities, athletics, special events, plusses for our district). Manipulate a template to create a simple newsletter about what has happened in their class thus far this year.

Procedure: 1. Introduce MS Publisher – different from Word; must insert text boxes to write, headlines, graphics, captions, etc. 2. Explore the beginning page of publisher – examine all the different possibilities to make either from a blank version or use a premade template that you can customize to your liking. 3. First Activity– create a business card for their personal class. Choose a premade template to start with and then customize it. Add name, address, phone contact, email, wikispace, etc. Add graphics and format font if needed. 4. Second Activity – work with a partner or group of 3 to create a brochure about their building. What are the pluses of their building or grade level. List items such as curriculum, special events, upcoming activities, discipline procedures, attendance, class times, sports, anything special they would like to share. These brochures will be shared with the rest of the group using the “teacher computer” screen. Discuss how to: • • align text • insert graphics (format the graphics – tight, square, etc.) • increase/decrease font size • picture captions • 2 or 3 column text boxes • linking text boxes to allow overflow of text. 5.

6. Third Activity– Display a sample newsletter from my class last year. Next choose a template to

customize as a newsletter for their classroom. Then work on creating their newsletter: wizard, page numbers, coloroptions. Review using various columns of text and linking text boxes to allow for text overflow. Practice changing fonts and adding borders around text boxes. Add pictures and captions; format the pictures around the text. 7. EXTRA:If time allows, create a poster without a template. Practice inserting text boxes and picture files. Formatting the various objects: font changes, alignments, layout (send back, bring front), text wrapping (tight, square, in front, behind), and use the drawing tools to create other objects. Closing: • Teachers will share with the group what they have created and how they may use these ideas in their classes. Monitor the teachers while they are performing each of the tasks described above; help when needed. Ask teachers to email me activities they do in their classes in order for it to be shared with others later in the year. Teachers will complete the ACT 48 evaluation page.

Teachers Will: • • • • Manipulate a premade spreadsheet in order to practice formatting cells. Analyze a set of data by using several formulas: sum and average. Create a spreadsheet displaying made up test data

Procedure:
1. Open the spreadsheet entitled Excel Training Sept 08 2. Work with Sheet 1 – First rename it to PSSA Data.

a. Resize columns b. Wrap text; alignment c. Add gridlines d. Change font e. Color cells f. Merge cells for titles g. Find the sum and average of the various columns and rows. 3. Work with Sheet 2 – Rename it “Presidents” a. Resize columns. b. Color the headings c. Add gridlines d. Insert columns between the name parts; insert a column before column A – use the concatenate formula. e. Hide columns f. Insert a column after zip – use concatenate again except insert a column between city/state and add a comma; show how to drag/copy by pulling down the small black box in the corner of the cell g. Sort the data by L Name field even though it is hidden 4. Work with Sheet 3 – Rename it “Cookie Sales” a. Resize columns b. Format the “price column” to show as currency with 2 decimals c. Add a column between quantity and price to determine the number of dozens sold d. Determine the total amount earned; determine the overall total earned e. Create a bar graph showing the cookies sold and showing the amount of money earned for each cookie (highlight the first two columns, then press the control key and highlight the money earned column)

5. Create their own spreadsheet and graph using the following data: Race for Time

a. Create the spreadsheet in sheet 4 – call it “race” b. Insert a column between columns between Fname, MI, and LName; place a space in the cell and copy it down the columns. c. Insert a column before the Fname column and use the concatenate formula [=concatenate(B2, C2, D2, E2, F2)] to create a column called Name d. Then hide columns B, C, D, E, F e. Insert a column between Trial 3 and Race Time – call it Average Trial Times f. Find the average of the 3 trials [=average(g2,h2,i2)] g. Then create a graph of the trials. h. Next create a graph of the average trial and the race time to see how their trials compared to their actual race time. Who won the race? Fname MI Lname Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3 Race Time John P Smith 4.25 mins 3.47 mins 4.10 mins 3.50 mins Less T Lane 4.07 mins 3.45 mins 3.37 mins 3.30 mins Jim P Jones 4.15 mins 4.05 mins 3.35 mins 3.45 mins Create the spreadsheet in sheet 4 – call it “race” Insert a column between columns between Fname, MI, and LName; place a space in the cell and copy it down the columns. Insert a column before the Fname column and use the concatenate formula [=concatenate(B2, C2, D2, E2, F2)] to create a column called Name Then hide columns B, C, D, E, F Insert a column between Trial 3 and Race Time – call it Average Trial Times Find the average of the 3 trials [=average(g2,h2,i2)] Then create a graph of the trials. Next create a graph of the average trial and the race time to see how their trials compared to their actual race time. Who won the race?
