Teach the course YOU want in LESS TIME! 

 

The primary goal of the GO! Series, aside from teaching computer applications, is ease of implementation. This approach is based on clearly defined projects for students and a one-of-a-kind supplements package for instructors.

 

GO! With Microsoft Office 2007 Introductory, 3/e, contains the same essential content as the previous edition, with some pedagogical changes that were made based on user feedback.

 

Office 2007 Made Easy!

 

Based on both professor and student feedback, this text has been designed to provide clear student comprehension. Help them learn about Microsoft Office 2007 by using the several learning tools available:

  • Microsoft Procedural Syntax — The procedural steps begin where the action is to take place, followed by the action itself.  The instruction is error-free, clearly written, and logically arranged.
  • Project-Based Instruction —Rather than only practice features of the application students create real projects that teach them skills needed for the real-world, which are color-coded for easy reference.
  • Learning Objectives and Student Outcomes — Objectives are clustered around projects that result in student outcomes.  They help students learn how to solve problems, not just learn software features.
  • A and B Projects — Each chapter contains two instructional projects —A and B.
  • Visual Summary — Shows students upfront what their projects will look like when completed.
  • Project Summary — Stated quickly and clearly in one paragraph.
  • Teachable Moment — Expository text is woven into the steps–at the moment students need to know it–not chunked together in a block of text that will go unread.
  • File Guide — Clearly shows students which files are needed for the project and the names they will use to save their documents.
  • Screen Shots — Larger examples of what students will see when trying a skill themselves.
  • Objective — The skills the student will learn are clearly stated at the beginning of each project and color coded to match projects listed on the chapter opener page.
  • Steps — Color-coded to the current project, steps are provided to guide the students throughout.
  • End-of-Project Icon — All projects in the GO! Series have clearly identifiable end points, useful in self-paced or online environments.
  • Try It! Exercises — Teach readers additional skills or new Office features that are not included within the instructional portion of each chapter.
  • Sequential Pagination — No longer are there any confusing letters and abbreviations.
  • Alert Box — Draws students’ attention to make sure they are not getting too far off course.
  • Another Way Box — Shows students alternate ways of doing tasks.
  • More Knowledge Box — Expands on a topic by going deeper into the material.
  • Note Box — Points out important items to remember.
  • Rubric — A matrix that states the criteria and standards for grading student work that is used to grade open-ended assignments.

The GO! Instructional System is divided into three categories that reflect how an instructor might organize their course.

  • Transition Guide — The authors have made it quick and easy to plan the format and activities for class.
  • Syllabus Template — Includes course calendar planner for 8-, 12-, and 16-week formats.

  • File Guide to the GO! Supplements — Tabular listing of all supplements and their file names.
  • Assignment Planning Guide — Description of the GO! assignments with recommendations based on class size, delivery mode, and student needs.
  • Student Data Files — Examples of homework submissions to serve as examples for students.
  • PowerPoints — Slides that feature key points of each chapter.
