Word Basics | June 14th, 3:00pm, Creekside Room 
Word can be useful for writing letters, creating flyers, and authoring poems, essays and stories. Thinking of what to write should be the hardest part. We'll make the rest easy. In this class, we'll start with the basics: creating a new document, adding content, saving and printing. We'll also discuss formatting: adjusting font types, styles, sizes, colors. We'll talk about adding bullet points and columns, adjusting margins and/or orientation, adding page breaks and numbering, footers and headers. If you want to count how many words you've written or you want to double space your lines, you'll know how to do that after this class.
