We have been working with Microsoft Word in most of my classes. We have focused on what font is and how it can be changed to drastically alter how a document looks. The students have shown their proficiency at changing the style, size and color, as well as using bold, italic, underline, highlighting. Some students have even moved onto altering page justifications and more. We have focused mostly on using Word 2007, as it is a happy medium between all 6 schools; some using Word 2003, some using Word 2007, and some lucky ones using Word 2010.
