This Lesson Plan includes two Handouts:
The Mac Operating System: This handout gives students information about the basics of the Mac Operating System. It will probably require some explaining on the teacher's end and some practice on the student's end, but it should be something that students can refer back to. During the first half of class I let students practice changing their computer's settings and opening new files and windows.
Practice Customizing your Computer: This is a set of challenges for the students to practice using the Mac. In the past I have let students try the first challenge, and if one of them completes it, have that student explain it to the rest of the class. This will give students a chance to practice giving and taking directions on using the computer.
