MICw ASSIGN 1: Basic Formatting




I’ll be grading your work based on what you upload to the CANVAS tool. Name the file exactly like I require (below) or you will lose points. DO NOT wait until the last hour to try uploading your completed assignment.


This assignment will focus on basic formatting concepts in Word 2013. You will have a set of formatting tasks, and you can use whatever method, in MS Word 2013, is easiest for you to accomplish them - the keystroke shortcut, or the Ribbon icon, or the right-clicked context menu, etc. Even if you have a Mac with Word 2011 or an older PCversion, the assignment must be completed in Word 2013 with its' specific upgrades.


Format one (1) page in Word 2013 using the text I provide in the Original Text link below as a starter. Format and personalize the page to look like the Required Outcome. DUE Thursday, October 9. 25 points.
