As a teacher you are probably also a sport coach or you are in charge of a group of learners like a choir or a something similar. At times you will need to publish a list of names before a big event such as a soccer match or a choir performance. Have you or someone you know ever needed to publish a list on the school notice board? What did you use to write up this list? How could you use the computer to help write a list in future?
Design a team list that you can print and use when you publish a list of names. Look at the following example:

Think about the following questions, and if working with a partner, discuss your ideas. Writing your ideas on a sheet of paper might be helpful.

- How would you arrange the information on the page?
- What would you add to the document so that it draws attention and inspires the learners?
- What sort of
picture might you add? Would it be appropriate?
- Which words might you want to emphasise and how will you do that?
