a) In a new document create a 4 to 5 paragraph review of a recent movie, concert, play, art show, or similar event that you attended. A review should be written based on facts and without bias. Be sure to include the appropriate information as listed above. You can use the Internet Movie Database to help with some of the information, but the review should be your own?

Stop here for part a. Save this as Critic

Part 3

  1. Fix all the errors on the first document. You will need to staple the new document on top of the old document.
  2. In a new paragraph to the end of the review  include a symbol that displays how many “star ” you would give the event. You can use any symbol you choose that would appropriately represent your rating. I chose a smiley face.
  3. In another paragraph, put the the number of words in the article.
  4. Add a left footer with the file name and right footer with the word Page-#(#=actual page number). You can use the auto text to do this.
  5. Take your picture with the camera in the computer and insert it in the article. Make the size approximately 2 inches wide by 3 inches long. Wrap the text around your picture. Place it on the front page.
  6. Check the document on screen and correct any errors and misspellings.
