Comp Tech - Alignment

Time Frame:
1 class period that runs 30 minutes.


Student follow along with a demonstration that portrays horizontal formatting applications. Students then compare, contrast, and label ten printed entries that show left, right, center, and justified alignment, as well as the use of expanded spacing and right tab with dot leaders.

Main Curriculum Tie:
Computer Technology IStrand 3
(Communication Networks, the Internet, and Digital Citizenship) Students will understand and be able to effectively use and navigate networks and the Internet (WHST 9-12.8) (NETS 5: a).



Instructional Procedures:
I have found that I cannot assume that all students have a clear understanding of these important formatting elements. I provide instruction through a projected demonstration, then have students complete the labeling sheet.
