Microsoft Word, I have used it a thousand times to write papers, but this week in my CALL course we were asked to create a Newsletter using many of the Word features we have been discussing (i.e. callouts, text effects, text boxes with background colors and a whole lot more). A wonderful activity for students to incorporate language learning with electronic literacy skills (not to mention content because the newsletter could be about anything they are studying in their science class, social studies or whatever!). Also, it’s another way students can collaborate with each other to create a newsletter together. You could even incorporate the comment and track changes features in Word for peer-editing and then share on a class blog or web site. Check out my CALLNewsletterabout blogging.
