Teachers are busy and often do not have time to learn new software applications. Word processing, databases, and spreadsheets can improve work efficiency, expand the range of tasks performed, improve accuracy and effectiveness, and reduce the amount of time needed to perform routine tasks. But how do teachers find the time to learn these applications? That is where this book comes in. Microsoft Office for Teachers, Third Editionpresents a visually illustrated and non-technical approach to learning the Microsoft Office 2007 suite. The book includes screen-captures along with text descriptions, work templates, and exercises to help teachers learn and use these applications without frustration. Templates for newsletters, grade books, etc are provided that demonstrate the usefulness of Microsoft Office in the classroom and the diversity of its applications. Teachers can quickly and easily tailor these templates and exercises to meet their specific needs. Lastly, the book focuses on various tasks such as making a presentation to a parent group or a school board as a catalyst for learning Microsoft Office. This book is written for teachers with very basic computing skills. Using non-technical and graphically illustrated "how-to" procedures teachers and students accomplish real-world, computer-based tasks and develop skills in word processing, database management, using spreadsheets, and making presentations.
