Q7 Formatting a Presentation

11. Powerful Presentations

formatting fun


As you may have discovered, most of the FORMAT tools are icons on the toolbar.  We want to make sure that you are aware of all of the options on the FORMAT toolbar before moving on! We have included a screen capture of the Format menu for you to view below. 


1. Jigsaw (divide and conquer) as a class: Students (or pairs) pick one of the Format menu items from the list to explore for 2-3 minutes.

2. Students will then demonstrate what they figured out to others in small groups or to the entire class.

3. Optional - The class might vote on their top 3 formatting tools and explain why.


Completing this Quest

Once you have demonstrated the features of the format tool you chose, and learned from classmates about the others, you are ready to learn about editing tools in Quest 8.

 Check off this Quest on the 21t4s Roadmap
