I CAN Formulate (put together; create) a Word document and save it to a folder I created and can identify (name; label).

I CAN interpret (explain the meaning; make clear) the class rules and support (give the facts; back up with details) with an example (give an instance; case) of each rule being broken.

Class Rules:

1. We only touch the computer we are logged into.
2. We never turn off a computer unless asked by the teacher.
3. We are always working on the assignment for that day and nothing else.
4. We never go to any website or application without permission, inappropriate or otherwise.
5. We always save in the proper location with the correct format for our filename. Example: VinnyC_Rules
6. When needing help or feeling stuck we use the “Ask Three Then Me” method, ask three of your peers before asking me.


Follow each step in order numbered order.

1. Open a new Word document.
2. Locate your (H:) drive. It usually starts with your 19# (login number)
3. Create a new folder and name it “7thGradeCS” or “8th GradeCS”.
4. Save your new document with the correct filename: FirstL_Rules (Example VinnyC_Rules)
5. Copy class rules above and paste them into the document.
6. After each rule provide an example of someone breaking that rule.

Conduct a class discussion on the rules and have students share some of their examples with the class.
