TV Guide Table Assignment

 

There has been research that suggests that the average American teen spends 2-4 hours a day watching television. As such, you are going to create a TV viewing guide based on the television shows you regularly watch.

You have a general working knowledge now of how tables work in MS-Word. You also have experience in changing font colors, script, size and background. You are now asked to take those newly learned MS-Word components and create a television viewing guide.

Please visit Yahoo's version of the TV Guide for programming.

Please start your lesson by doing the following

  1. Open MS-Word.
  2. In the upper left hand corner of the page, please input your name.
  3. Follow your name with "TV Guide Table Assignment."
  4. Move your cursor down the page by several lines and create a table for television viewing habits. Please note that every day of the week should be covered.
  5. Upon completion of the table, please personalize it by changing the font (script, size, color and background).
  6. Please note that aesthetics matter! That is to say make this table must have eye appeal.
  7. Save your work as "TV Guide."
