Communicating in A Big Way - Digital Design Using Wide Format Printing

(View Complete Item Description)

Communication is key in our daily lives. We need to have access to what is on our calendar – the school calendar. And yes, it’s great to have it electronically, but when there is a large group of people checking dates for an event it’s nice to have a large format for at-a-glance information. In this lesson, students will learn to create a large format 18” x 24” calendar file that could be printed and posted in a classroom to use for reference to upcoming events for the month. In our small community it has also become a public relations tool for our school and several are posted in businesses throughout our school district. Using the picture file format of the design, the calendar is also shared electronically each month for smaller print format in the community newsletter and online access.

Mail Merge - Graduation Labels

(View Complete Item Description)

One of the most common things I did during my work experience was making labels for a variety of reasons - mailing labels, shipping labels, name tags/badges, file folder labels, etc. In this lesson, students complete a mail merge with the teacher, then use addresses of family and friends to create labels that they could put on their graduation announcements.
