Objectives:
  Using MS Word, students will create a new word processing document using at least three sentences, creating a personal folder and saving it to My Documents.
Materials:
 teacher computer, projector to demonstrate method, student computers
Introduction:
 Discuss how word processing on a computer is used in place of pencil and paper to create written sources. It is much more useful because the file can be edited, saved and retrieved easily.
Development:
 Using my computer and the projector, I will demonstrate how to create a new WP file, identify it as a new file, add data to the file. Create a personal folder under My Documents and save the file for the first time using a specific file name.
Practice:
 Students will now create a new WP file, add 3 sentences of data. Create a folder on My Documents, save the file in the folder with a specific name.
Accommodations:
 Student may type just his/her name in a new WP document and then save it in a newly created folder under My Documents.
Checking For Understanding:
 Have students tell their study buddy the process they used to create and save the file for the first time.
Closure:
 Have students describe when this might be useful for other class assignments.
Evaluation:
 Observe each students created file in their personal folder.
Teacher Reflections:
 Verify every student has created and saved at least one file. Did they enjoy this process, as well as learn a new technique? Will I use this with another class?
