Description: Teachers across the country recommend Janet Caughlin's best-selling book AppleWorkshop for Students 6.0: Secondary 7-12 as the #1 AppleWorks tutorial for secondary students--bar none. Janet has poured her nationally respected expertise on the popular and important AppleWorks (formerly ClarisWorks) all-in-one program, as well as her 29 years of classroom experience as a teacher and trainer into this resource. Jam-packed with ready-to-use, step-by-step lesson plans used by teachers around the country, this book is your best tool to help your students master the wide range of computer skills in AppleWorks.

  • The step-by-step lessons in this book contain tons of screen shots and visuals. Students follow right along on the computer, using templates they open from the accompanying CD-ROM. Students can either complete the lessons in class or as a take home assignment.

  • This book has been carefully designed to be flexible and fit right into your curriculum. The more than 30 lessons provide a wonderful resource for any subject and are aimed at both first timers as well as advanced users of multimedia in technology infused classrooms. Students can learn as much as they want at their own pace. You can print out individual lessons and blacklines to teach specific concepts, or you can use the book as the basis of a complete stand alone class or unit.

  • Lessons in both editions of this book cover all portions of the program:

    • Word Processing (Letter Writing, Outlines, Research Reports, Stationary Creation, and Newsletters);
    • Drawing & Painting (Business Cards, Weather Charts, Slide Shows on Mitosis, Conjugations, Mythology, Primitive Technology, Animation);
    • Spreadsheet (in Pre-Algebra, The Ocean Floor, Historical Calendars, Nutrition, Budget Planning);
    • Database (of Native Americans, States, Presidents, Vacation Sites, Budget Planning, and Famous Women);
    • Advanced Features (Creating a Home Page and Using Internet Graphics in Documents).
    • The 6.0 edition also covers AppleWorks' powerful new Presentation module.

  • ClarisWorkshop for Students: Secondary 7-12 is the only ClarisWorks tutorial with simultaneous and complete coverage of 4.0, 3.0 and 2.1 versions of both the Macintosh and Windows versions of ClarisWorks. The special new edition of the book, AppleWorkshop for Students 6.0: Secondary 7-12, focuses exclusively on the recently released AppleWorks 6.0, including its amazing new Presentation module.

  • Both the book and the CD-ROM are loaded with practical classroom resources including original curricular clip art.

Media & Platform: Mac/Win CD-ROM
