No matter what you do for a living, learning Word can also come in handy in your personal life. We're going to take a few weeks and concentrate on becoming proficient in Word. Note I said proficient, not professional. I do not expect you to know everything about the software, but I do expect you to be able to do the things on your competencies list. We'll be using an online tutorial website that you've used for other things.
To get started, visit this page. I want you to complete the items under "Word Basics." On the page for each lesson, you will see a file that you can download. This is your practice document. This is the document you will be emailing me to show your work.
If you have questions, feel free to ask!
