Desktop Publishing Project (Complete Project 1 or Project 2, not both)
For this project, you will use the process of Documentation to make sure you have a reference to some aspect of your life that is important to you. Use the premise of Critical Thinking Activity 6-1 on page DP 184 as a guide on how to accomplish this task. An example would be to document how you reinstalled your operating system onto your computer or to create a how - to booklet on how you complete your workout routine. The goal is to pick something that interests you and be able to communicate to yourself or others in an effective manner.
If you can not think of anything that you would like to document from your personal experiences, feel free to complete the activity on page 185.
Marketing yourself for a job can be hard to do. Using Microsoft Publisher, create a Resume, a Business Card, and a Postcard with a similar theme. Use your current job background and educational experience to try to promote yourself to a specific job title.
