Before you leave today you will know how to use Google Draw to create a jpeg. You will also have the opportunity to apply the employability skills of following written & verbal instruction. Be sure to read everything below BEFORE doing it!! Also, be sure to read all of #1 and THEN do it before moving one!! Today’s lesson isn’t hard IF you follow all the instructions below!!

  1. THE DREAM TEAM PRE-GAME–PG 2 Team Logo–Read the GOAL on the first page & look at Joe’s examples on the second page. What you print will look similar to Joe’s example except it will be your own logos.
  2. WATCH THIS VIDEO TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE A LOGO USING GOOGLE DRAWINGS–Here are some things that will be useful to you when watching this video:
    1. Here is how you get to Google Draw:
      1. Go to your Google Drive using Chrome.
      2. Click the NEW button
      3. Click MORE
      4. Click Google Drawings
    2. MAXIMIZE the video on your CHROMEBOOK and actually do what I am doing in the video using the computer you are sitting at in my classroom.
    3. When making your logos in Google Draw use the ENTIRE CANVAS to avoid lots of empty white space in your clipart–the canvas is the area with the gray and white boxes–I don’t do a good job of this in the video.
    4. At about the 5:44 mark–you will download to your ONEDRIVE, not Google Drive. If the SAVE AS dialog box doesn’t pop up when you download, but you see that the JPEG did download to your computer in the lower left corner of the browser window, do the following:
      1. Click the downloaded image link button in the lower left corner of the browser button.
      2. If a dialog box pops up: Click PHOTOS & click OK
      3. When the picture appears, in the upper right corner of the dialog box is a button with 3 dots, click the 3 dots and choose SAVE AS
      4. Now, pick your ONEDRIVE & choose your 7th Grade folder for this class.
    5. THIS IS IMPORTANT: You will be making THREE DIFFERENT LOGOS!!! Here is what you should do when you are done making your first logo:
      1. DOWNLOAD it as a JPEG file to your ONEDRIVE on the computer you are sitting at in my classroom.
      2. Go back to Google Draw, choose CREATE NEW, and make your second logo, then download it like you did for the first one. Repeat this to make your third logo.
    6. Once you are done creating & downloading your 3 logos, you will insert all 3 logos into a Word file and then you will print the Word file. I show you how to do this about the 6:30 mark in the video. Pick one of the following printers:
      1. HP Color Laserjet M553
      2. HP Officejet Pro 8600
    7. After printing, put your printout on the table. Your classmates will vote by putting a check mark beside the logo they like best.
    8. You should vote on your classmates logos as they print & put their printouts on the table.
  3. Go to your Word Online file for this class. Write 3 to 5 sentences about how you can use what you learned today outside of this classroom.

Before you leave today you will know how to create a table using Microsoft Word. At this point in the game, it is expected that you begin to try to figure problems out on your own by following the instructions provided–both written below and in the video. If you cannot figure something out after trying at least 2 or 3 ways or by re-watching the video or by re-reading the instructions, then you should ask a classmate for help. If neither of you can figure it out, then ask Mrs. Weber. When you are on the job, employers/managers LOVE it when employees are able to think for themselves and solve problems on their own; however, they still want the job to be done right, so ask for help! 🙂

  1. Typing Web: Please keep your eyes on your screen while you practice!!
  2. Read this and look at Joe’s example: THE DREAM TEAM PRE-GAME–PG 3 Team Roster–WATCH THIS VIDEO FOR FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS–you DO NOT need to fill out the planning form–you can just type in your roster as you find them–you don’t have to write it out first like Joe did. Ask Mrs. Weber for the planning form–YOU don’t have to print it.
  3. Once you are finished watching the video, follow these steps IN ORDER to create the table:
    1. Click the Windows button in the lower left corner of your screen
    2. Type Word & click Word 2016
    3. Click Blank Document
    4. Click FILE
    5. Click SAVE AS & save to your folder for this class in your ONEDRIVE

  6. A couple FYI’s in the World According to Mrs. Weber (I am putting this here because I do not want to start class on a negative note and I don’t feel comfortable saying this out loud; however, these things DO bother me significantly, not only in my classroom, but during assemblies and meetings and basically, anywhere):
    1. I think it is rude to talk when someone else is talking–your classmates, your teacher, anyone. It is like saying “I am going to talk and not listen to you because I don’t really care what you have to say.”
    2. I also think being on your phone when there are things going on around you that you should be paying attention to is rude. It is like saying “My phone is WAY more important than anything happening right now.” Going without your phone is HEALTHY! TRY IT!! I am trying too!!
    LET’S HAVE A GOOD REST OF THE SEMESTER!? OK????
    1. Complete the Team Work Form for you and for all of your teammates–this is anonymous–only Mrs. Weber will know what you put in this form
    2. Complete the Citizenship/Employability Form FOR YOU! Be honest in your self-evaluation!
    3. FYI: Mrs. Weber will be calling your home at some point during this grading period. Please make it be a GOOD & POSITIVE exchange with your parents/guardians. 🙂
