With a new format for information, the look of my syllabus
also had to change. Publisher provides a variety of ways
of conveying information. I have provided several examples
of how information can be delivered. Many of my choices
reflect the importance of the information.
||Using Publisher means that I have had to be selective
of the information that I include. For example, the
"Successful College Students" page on the
left, while visually interesting, also contains very
succinct information because of the limited space.
Publisher also allows me to make my course calendar
an actual calendar, which is easier for both my
students and me.
I can place specific or general information, as
well as a list of homework.
of the purposes of adopting a newsletter format was to
change the delivery of information from simple paragraphing
to newspaper-like articles. I use short, squat articles
of the typical newspaper columns.
My general information page, with course information,
texts, and the date of the final, looks different from
all the other pages, which helps emphasize the information.
The template for this page is already provided by Publisher.

This would also be a good time to open Microsoft Publisher
on your own computer and complete each lesson as you move
through the site. Have fun!
