BACK TO MR. Shamblin's Educational Technology Site

Computer applications teachers are always looking for new and exciting ways to teach Microsoft Word to their students. 

So where can you find Microsoft Word lesson plans for your students?

Rather than spending hours upon hours creating your own lesson plans, wouldn’t you like some that you can simply integrate into your existing computer applications curriculum?

It seems that there are a lot of lesson plans out there for teaching Microsoft Word, but many of them are outdated (I found some for Word 2003… Yikes!)

However, I managed to find a few that are for the 2010 and 2013 versions of Microsoft Word below.

3 Microsoft Word Lesson Plans for Middle School

So you need Microsoft Word lesson plans for middle school students?

It’s important to remember that though they probably have some basic knowledge of Word, there is still a lot they need to learn.

But where do you begin?

1. Business&ITCenter21

First, we offer comprehensive and up-to-date lessons on Microsoft Word 2010, 2013, and 2016.

We cover the basics and offer a bunch of projects that your students can easily follow. On top of that, our lessons give you plenty of time to add your own expertise and ideas every day. 

Essentially, you still lead the classroom — we just take care of the tedious work! That makes us ideal for a blended learning environment that is part lecture, part digital. 

But we're not the only option out there, and we know that teachers like to shop around for the perfect lesson plans for them

So in the interest in fairness, here are a few other options you could choose. 

2. GCF Learn Free

GCF Learn Free has some great lessons for both Word 2010 and Word 2013 that you could assign to your students.

There are videos and walkthroughs for many of the basics, each organized by what skill is being taught.

One way to use this resource could be to flip your classroom.

Tell your students what to go over at home and then when they are in class, use what they learned to complete an activity relating to those skills.

3. Teachers Pay Teachers

If you have never used Teachers Pay Teachers, this is a great time to look into it. It is a great resource if you have a little bit of time and don’t mind spending a few dollars.

There are a number of Microsoft Word lesson ideas on the site. It will take a little digging, but you can easily find one that you can add to your classroom.

Here’s a lesson I found on Teachers Pay Teachers that is a good exercise for middle school students to help them learn the ribbon commands. Too basic for your students? Keep digging!

Who better to get good Microsoft Word lesson plans than from an actual teacher?

This instructor has a few lessons on his site that you could integrate into your existing ones. Take a look and see if any of them work for your students!

Microsoft Word Practice Activities

To properly teach your students about Microsoft Word, you need more than just lessons.

It’s important that you give your students actual activities that will use the skills and knowledge they gain from your Microsoft Word lessons.

When searching for Microsoft Word practice activities, I found a treasure trove of resources that other teachers have put together.

This teacher’s site has Microsoft Word activities, broken down into lessons. Each one has vocab words, some lecture notes, and an activity or project that students will complete.

This computer applications teacher has over 20 activities.

Each one indicates what new skills the student will learn by completing the activity.

Some of them require additional documents not shared here, but they could help spark some ideas for your own Microsoft Word practice activities.

Again I will suggest that you spend a little bit of time on Teachers Pay Teachers to find activities and ideas for your students. It’s all about knowing what to search for.

Microsoft Word Activity for Students

So I’ve shared some great lesson plans, activities, and ideas for your computer applications classes.

But if you’re like most teachers, you don’t have a ton of time to look through all of those resources.

Don’t worry — I have a Microsoft Word activity for students you can use right now!

Click here to access the lesson plan and starter document.

The activity is part of our Microsoft Word Fundamentals module, which introduces your students to the basics of Microsoft Word. It can be used as a stand-alone lesson, or you could sign up for a trial of Business&ITCenter21 to get the whole picture.

Need lesson plans for the rest of Microsoft Office? We have you covered!
