CPT Word Processing Instructional Materials.
Slaymaker, Josephine; Eakman, Donna
A project to develop a student word processing manual was developed by using input from: (1) information specialists, employees, and educators; and (2) students using the manual. These instructional materials provide workbook assignments and reading for an individualized unit on CPT word processing to be used by 30 to 40 high school students per year. The unit is divided into three sections. Ten introductory chapters cover identifying system components, setting margins and tabs and format lines, typing text, recording to and recalling from disk, printing from disk, printing from screen, disk table of contents, centering text, underlining text, and document creation. Nine intermediate chapters focus on editing text, changing margins in editing, changing line spacing in editing, using non-adjust features, typing with coded functions, using coded tabs, block move, decimal tabs, and column move. Topics of the eight advanced chapters are search and replace, keyboard programs, screen sort, inserting pre-recorded material, inserting text with variables, control page printing, merge, and using merge with a selection line. In each chapter are reading assignments and a corresponding exercise for the student to complete. Some assignments have several exercises to provide students with ample practice in developing a skill and knowledge of a procedure. (YLB)
