Description: Teachers and trainers across the country recommend Janet Caughlin's best-selling book AppleWorkshop for Teachers as the #1 AppleWorks tutorial on the market--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, which is now in its 6th edition. It's your quickest introduction and best reference tool for AppleWorks.

  • The step-by-step lessons in this book contain tons of screen shots and visuals. You follow right along on the computer, using templates you open from the accompanying CD-ROM.

  • This book has been carefully designed to help both first timers as well as advanced users make better use of their valuable teaching time. You can learn as much as you want at your own pace. Trainers can print out individual lessons to teach specific concepts, or they can use the book as the basis of a complete stand alone class or training unit.

  • AppleWorkshop for Teachers (formerly ClarisWorkshop for Teachers) is the only AppleWorks tutorial with simultaneous and complete coverage of 5.0, 4.0, 3.0 and 2.1 versions of both the Macintosh and Windows versions of AppleWorks.

  • All editions of AppleWorkshop for Teachers cover the word processing, drawing, painting, spreadsheet and database modules, plus advanced AppleWorks features. The 6.0 version also covers AppleWorks' powerful new Presentation module.

—Gay Smith, Joshua Tree Elementary, Joshua Tree, CA
"A brief read-through of the word processing section had me wishing that I had had this book as a Claris beginner. The author does an exceptional job of explaining the features of this program in a clear, concise manner....Illustrations of screens are interspersed with text in a way which provides little opportunity for confusion...Intermediate users of ClarisWorks will find, as I did, that there is meat in this book. Drawing and Painting, features of the program which were not well-known to me, are explained in a manner that captivates. I found brief explanations on memory allocation and the differences between the file sizes of similar graphic objects created in each of these applications which explained old mysteries to me. Both the Spreadsheet and Database sections are explained in the same complete manner...Aside from recommending ClarisWorkshop to anyone wanting to learn or develop skills with ClarisWorks, I am pleased to have it on my shelf as a reference. I also think that schools that are teaching ClarisWorks in a lab situation would find this an exceptional text for student use.”
—Doug Squire, Science/Math Resource, EOU School of Education and Business, La Grande, OR

“I love your book, etc., and have suggested others purchase it also.”
—Carolyn Blake, Teacher, Lincoln Elementary, Dickinson, ND
