Elementary and middle school students assume the role of an editor. They improve the quality of a document to prepare it for publication. Using Google Docs or Microsoft Word, they learn essential word processing skills that allow them to edit a collection of tales written for children. An exploration of text, graphic, and page layout formatting techniques allow them to revise stories, comics, and poetry.


WORD PROCESSING ACTIVITIES FOR BEGINNERS: Designed especially for elementary and middle schools, lessons introduce word processing with fun activities.

DEVELOP EXPERTISE: Templates support learners as they master text, picture, and page layout formatting techniques in either Microsoft Word or Google Docs.

HELPFUL RESOURCES: TechnoEditor includes a digital Teacher Guide and Student Workbook with easy to follow instructions. Worksheets may be printed or used in PDF format. Assessment tools include marking sheets, quizzes, and a skill checklist.
