Exercise

 

[First Name and Last Name]

 

Today is Monday, June 18, 2007. It’s the first day of class for Microsoft Word!

 

Would you like to learn a lot over the coming weeks? If so, come to class every Saturday and practice during the week.

Homework

 

[First and Last Name]

 

Microsoft Word is a word processing program. The main function of a word processor is very similar to a typewriter. However, unlike a typewriter, if one makes a mistake, it is very easy to correct that mistake.

 

A very important skill in using a word processor is to understand the keys on the keyboard. Notice the numbers along the top row of keys. On the same key above each number there is a symbol. For example, on the “1” key, there is an exclamation point. To type an exclamation point, one must depress and hold the shift key while pressing the “1” key. Isn’t that great!

 

Here is an example of utilizing these keys:

 

5% of $50.00 is $2.50 (That wasn’t too hard, was it?)

 

Remember that capital letters are typed by depressing and holding the shift key while pressing the desired letter key. Quotation marks, which are “the two marks encompassing this phrase” are created by depressing and holding the shift key while pressing the key next to the “Enter” key. If you do not press the shift key, the marks will be ‘single quotes’. This mark is also used as an apostrophe as in the following words: isn’t, can’t, and wasn’t.

 

Experimenting with the keyboard is a great way to learn how to type all the different symbols that are available. Have fun playing around with these keys!

Class 4 Outline

· Place the file “Lesson 4 in class paragraph” in each student’s folder.

· Briefly review paragraph formatting (alignment, line spacing, margins, indenting the first line).

· Pass out a hard copy of “Lesson 4 in class instruction” and have the class retrieve the ‘paragraph’ so that they can perform this exercise.

· Teach the formatting technique of ‘borders and shading’.

- Borders (setting, style, color, width): Explain that this border can be used to surround entire paragraphs or just individual words. Illustrate this by placing a border around the title of the ‘in class’ paragraph.

- Page Borders (setting, style, color, width, art): Show how to use the ‘diagram’ to select individually the top border, left border, right border, and bottom border.

- Shading: Explain the difference between shading and highlighting (which is from the tool bar, the button next to the font color button). Shading places a ‘nicely-shaped’ colored box around the text, whereas highlighting merely highlights the selected text.

· Teach the class how to insert a page break and explain the function of a page break. Have them insert a page break at the end of the paragraph. Show the class how to use the scroll bar to go back and forth between the pages.

· Explain and demonstrate how to change from portrait to landscape layout.

· Teach the class how to use print preview and how to adjust the zoom (100%, page width, whole page, etc.)

· Explain the “different” views associated with Microsoft Word. Recommend teaching the class to use either normal view or page layout view and how to switch from one to the other.

· Have the class save their work.

· Pass out the homework (Lesson 4 homework). This is an open-ended homework. Tell the class to create a landscape “certificate”-like document that incorporates borders, page borders, and shading. They can try to duplicate the homework but do not need to be exact. The key is to use the borders and shading capabilities of Word.

Exercise

“No More Hogging the Aisle in Flight”

When pigs fly, they travel first class but aren't well-behaved passengers. On a US Airways flight from Philadelphia to Seattle, two passengers used a doctor's note to persuade airline officials to allow them to bring a 250-pound pig aboard, claiming it was a "service animal," akin to a seeing-eye dog. According to passenger accounts, the pig went wild upon landing, trying to enter the pit and defecating in the cabin. Now, the Federal Aviation Administration and the airline are investigating the matter, trying to determine whether safety and sanitation rules were violated.

 


Class 5 Outline

· Place the file “Lesson 5 in class article” in each student’s folder.

· Briefly review borders, page borders, and shading.

· Pass out a hard copy of “Lesson 5 in class instructions” and have the class retrieve the article so that they can perform this exercise.

· Teach the 2 methods of checking for spelling mistakes.

§ Have the class right click on the word “Unitted” in the first sentence so that a selection of correctly spelled words similar to “Unitted” will be displayed.

§ Have the class perform a spell check on the entire document. Point out that if a single word is misspelled throughout the document, that word can be corrected throughout the document using the “Change All” option. In this document the word “number” is misspelled every time. Also, note that not every word that the spell check questions is actually misspelled. In cases where the word is actually correct, the user must select “ignore” to continue with the spell check.

· Explain the use of the Thesaurus and show the class how to access it. Have them select the word “critics” from the third paragraph and ask them what synonyms are listed for this word in the thesaurus. Note that “critics” will not be in the thesaurus, but critic (without the ‘s’) will be there.

§ Have the class select “Microsoft Word Help” from the Help menu. Tell them to type the following question: “How do I underline a word?” When the choices for the answer to the question appears, have them click the bullet that says “Underline text or numbers”.

§ Next, have the class select “Contents and Index” from the Help menu. Under the “index” tab, have them type the word “bold”, so that they can see that instructions on “bold formatting” will be shown to them.

· Teach the class how to insert page numbers by selecting “page numbers” from the insert menu.

· Bullets and Numbering--Point out the “bulleted” section of the article. Show them how to remove or add the bullets to that section. Also, show them how it can be switched from bullets to numbering. Use the tool bar for this.

· Hand out the homework “Lesson 5 homework”.

Tips

Checking Spelling

· If a word has a red squiggly line underneath it, place the mouse anywhere on that word and right click. Then left click on the word that shows that correct spelling.

· To spell check an entire document, click on “Tools” from the menu bar, then click “Spelling and Grammar”. A window will appear displaying each word that Microsoft Word does not recognize. For each word, you have the option to ignore the “misspelling” or have Microsoft Word change the spelling by selecting one of the options in the suggestions field and clicking “Change”.

 

Thesaurus

· Select the word for which you would like to find a synonym.

· Click on “Tools” from the menu bar.

· Click on “Language”.

· Click on “Thesaurus”.

· Review the options from the list. Select the desired synonym and click “Replace”.

 

Page Numbering

· Click on “Insert” on the menu bar.

· Click on “Page Numbering”.

· Select the alignment and position you would like to place the page numbers.

· Click “OK”

 

Bullets and Numbering

· Place the blinking cursor in the area of your document where you would like to create a bulleted or numbered list.

· Click on the “bullets” button or the “numbering” button from the tool bar, depending on whether you would like to create bullets or create a numbered list.

· Begin typing the list. After each item or line, press the “Enter” key and a bullet (or number) will automatically appear on the next line with the blinking cursor.

· Once you are finished with list, press “Enter” to advance the blinking cursor to the next line. Another bullet (or number) will automatically appear, so to get rid of it, click on the bullets (or numbering) button on the tool bar to deactivate this format.

2. Place a single-line black “shadow” border (1 pt width) around the title.

3. Shade the title gray.

4. Insert a page border (double-line black, box border, 4 point width) around the document.

5. Left align the article.

Exercise

 

“What Are Your Chances of Getting Into Med School?”

In the past, if you wanted to go to medical school you almost had to be a science major, and college advisors encouraged undergrads to concentrate on typical premed fields like biology, chemistry, and physics.

Today, you have more choice. Most medical schools encourage students to pursue a broad, liberal arts education and place more emphasis on the breadth and depth of coursework than the area of study. Still, admissions committees need to know that you can handle the rigors of science-intensive medical school coursework and maintain certain minimum requirements. Although mandatory courses vary somewhat from school to school, the basic requirements at most schools are as follows:

Biology or Zoology

1 year with lab

Inorganic Chemistry

1 year with lab

Organic Chemistry

1 year with lab

Physics

1 year with lab

English

1 year

A number of schools also require coursework in calculus or college-level math, behavioral science, the humanities, and computers. Some more competitive schools require advanced-level science courses, especially for students who meet basic requirements through high school advanced placement credits.

Most of the admissions officers we surveyed placed Grade Point Average (GPA) at or near the top of their rankings of selection factors. In assessing your GPA, admissions committees look at two different values: your science GPA and your overall GPA. While the science GPA has traditionally been the more important of the two, the movement toward recruiting a more well-rounded student body has increased the importance of the nonscience GPA.

In general, successful applicants have very high GPAs, and your cumulative average is likely to have a large impact on where you are admitted. In recent years, the mean GPA of accepted students has been a little over 3.4 (out of 4.0), and almost fifty percent had a GPA of 3.5 or above. Barely two percent of accepted students had a GPA of 2.5 or under. Most students who are admitted with substandard GPAs are chosen because admissions committees recognize either mitigating factors that adversely affected the GPA (such as an educationally disadvantaged background) or significant and progressive improvement of grades in the upper-class years. Medical schools can also be swayed by an exceptional performance on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

This article was excerpted from Medical School Companion, by Mary Ross-Dolen MD, Keith Berkowitz, and Ali Eyad.
