Microsoft Office 2013

Create and Edit PDF Files

Office has toyed around with PDF files in past versions, but this time around Microsoft got serious. In the past you could save as PDF, but now you can actually edit. The new Word 2013 allows you to open PDF files, edit them there, and then save them as either DocX files or PDFs.

To save a file as PDF simply click “Save” and then use the dropdown menu to choose the .PDF option. It is one of the many file types you can choose here.

  • Interactive Surgeries

    Strong teachers don’t teach content. Google has content. Strong teaching connects learning in ways that inspire kids to learn more and strive for greatness.” (Eric Jenson)

    Mark Richardson, an enthusiastic Math and Journey to Careers teacher at Champ Cooper School changes the future one day at a time in his classroom. He empowers his students with uniquely structured assignments that keep them challenged and engaged. After researching the Health and Sciences cluster in Journey to Careers, the students were given an opportunity to view and participate in four internet-based interactive surgeries: cataract eye surgery, LASIK eye surgery, root canal, and hip resurfacing. These interactive surgeries allowed the students to experience what life could be like in the medical field as well as increase their knowledge of the human body. Many students may not choose Health Sciences as their field of study in the future, however, all students have a better understanding of the cluster and a much greater respect for those people who already work in the field of Health. Students pictured above left to right: Raylynn Overman, Darryl Chandler, Ryan Raiford and Mr. Richardson, Skylar Schilling.

    Mrs. Grace's 3rd grade class worked to break Ralph the bunny out of the Breakout box.  Students participated in a student-centered,  inquiry based lesson and  worked in teams to problem solve and think critically as they solved clues to unlock a series of locks. Students covered skills such as expanded notation, vocabulary, sorting, completing puzzles, and research using QR codes as well as the internet.
