"Stress" worksheet

 
  "Worldwide" proofmark handout  
     
M, Mar 19 MEMO-EXAMPLE  
T, Mar 20

Finish MEMO EXAMPLE. Print MEMO-EXAMPLE.

Type MEMO22B1, MEMO22B2, and MEMO22B3 - on pages 60-61 in the same format as the blue handout. Type each on a separate document. WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW TO PRINT.

  • The filename for the first memo is located on page 61.
  • On the third memo, use the same font as you normally do.
  • If text is bolded and/or italicized, then the punctuation within it is as well. However, if text is underlined the punctuation at the end is NOT underlined, but the punctuation within is--just like this example.
  • Also, remember to include reference initials to every memo whether or not the book reminds you or not. You have until Wednesday to get them done.
  • One memo shows "enclosure" instead of "attachment". Use "enclosure" which means the same thing.
  • Replace "xx" with your own reference/typist initials. Even if a memo on the page doesn't show reference initials they should be included. THIS GOES FOR ALL MEMOS.
  • The book makes you remember more and more as the memos progress. If a memo talks about attaching or enclosing a document, then you will have to remember to include the notation. The same goes for copy notations.
  • The italics or handwritten looking stuff -- don't bother changing the font.  Just type the text.
  • When you are done,  print all three and staple them in order and turn them in as one project. Points will be deducted if they are not stapled and/or out of order. Continue working on MTPro and Keychamp Software
 
W, Mar 21

Look over the returned papers to see what mistakes were made. Learn from these mistakes and avoid them for the next assignment. ALWAYS remember to change the line and paragraph spacing on each document. All documents should have reference/typist initials. Always remember to read the paragraphs as you are typing to see if there is a reference to an attachment or enclosure. If so, then add the words "Attachment" or "enclosure" to the end of the memo.

Finish memos from previous class. Turn in all three memos together, stapled in order.

Type MEMO24B1, MEMO24B2 & MEMO24B3 on pages 64-65. SPECIAL DIRECTIONS: On B1 type the font as normal. (They added the special font style to look like handwriting to get you used to typing from different font. You do not have to change the font).  The hyperlink will turn blue once you type it correctly and press the space bar after the last letter.  On Memo 24B3, be sure to use the numbered list.  It will automatically indent which is ok. Be sure to backspace to the left margin after typing the enumerated items.

Continue working on MTPro and Keychamp Software. If you are totally done with the red, you may work on your own.

  • The vertical RED lines indicate the different sections of the headings. Just type a heading and its information then enter and space as you would normally shown on the MEMO EXAMPLE HANDOUT.
  • on 45B1 - use bullets for the list. Double space before and after the list. Single space between the items.
  • on 45B2 - the directions on the side tell you to include a blind copy notation to someone. simply include "bc" instead of "c" for the copy notation.
  • on 45B3 - the recipient list will most likely extend and return to a second line of the document and be under the "TO" heading. That is okay.

    • BEGIN BUSINESS LETTERS-LETTERHEAD PINK HANDOUT- Business letters are much like Personal Business letters except they do not have a return address and they begin with just the date at the top. (NOTE: A business will have a letterhead that contains the address information, phone number, etc. But, you do not have to type that information on other documents; only add the school letterhead to the example.)

      On the Business Letter handout? Label the parts of the business letter by writing the terms in the left margin.

      AS A CLASS: Insert the lines for the letterhead on the LTR-B-EXAMPLE by:

      • click in the header, place cursor in the first line of the header
      • On the Home tab, then the Border pull-down menu, choose the Top Border
      • place cursor in the last line of the header
      • On the Home tab, then the Border pull-down menu, choose the Bottom Border
      • Close the header
      • Double check the document is done and the footer is correct.
      • Create the letterhead from the handout. Type the Business Letter. Do not print today.

Return Papers. Look over any mistakes to learn from.

Type LTR57B1, B2, and B3 from page 164. 

  • Be sure to read the information in the left margin that supplies the letter parts you need to complete the business letters.
  • An example of an appropriate saluation/greeting is "Dear Mr. Cooper".  Always use "Dear", then the last name of the recipient. Never use the first name.
  • Use open punctuation.
