1 – WRITING AROUND THE ROOM
As a member of the Journalism Club, you volunteered to obtain writing from a number of students in the school for
publication in the school newspaper. You decide to use a write-around technique. The newspaper will end up with stories written by ten or more students, working as
Compose a story
Use the “Help”
Check spelling and grammar
Insert headers and footers
Illustrate with graphics
Create a watermark
Brainstorm at your computer with a make up paragraph
of anything silly that comes to your mind. (Remember, it must be school appropriate.)
When you have completed a few sentences or when your
teacher tells you to stop, insert a footnote containing your first and last name at the end of the paragraph. (If you need help with footnotes, use your software’s Help feature and your word processor to
write the steps for inserting footnotes.)
Save the file as 1-1.
Now it is time to move to your neighbor’s computer.
Read what has been written so far.
Begin a new paragraph, and continue the story.
At the designated time or when your teacher tells
you, insert a footnote containing your name at the end of the paragraph and resave the story.
Continue writing at different computers; until your
teacher tells you to stop.
