Desktop Publishing has some interesting features. I like how you can use as much color on the handout as you want. Also working with different fonts for presentation is a good quality to learn. If a handout out is not pleasing to the eyes, it will be seen as boring and useless to the students. Adding a picture or clip art can really liven up a handout. Having a handout out can help the students to understand topics better. Teacher's have to make many handouts over their career, so it is a good idea to learn the features of a worksheet now.
Students can be introduced to desktop publishing by having the create a worksheet for the class to complete. The teacher can give the students guidelines like how many questions, fonts, colors, if an picture is needed. Then the students can hand out the worksheet to the class and the other students can tell them if it was good. Having them complete a worksheet they will help them undertsand the topics they are learning. This assignment will help the students study for the test that will follow.
