Students can certainly benefit from practicing new skills and concepts on paper. From letters and numbers to report summary formats, worksheets can provide students with a framework for practice _ an avenue for synthesizing new information in their brains. Well designed worksheets can also give students a platform for expressing creative ideas and reaching towards higher levels of thinking. So what is the concern? There are three big concerns, actually. Our teacher "caution light" should start blinking if we are using lower_level_thinking worksheets (Example: "Check the box next to the correct answer."), if we are using too many worksheets or if we are using worksheets as classroom busy work.
1. Quickly Move to a Worksheet _ To quickly navigate to a worksheet in an Excel workbook, right_click on any of the 4 triangle navigation buttons (located immediately to the left of the worksheet tabs) to display a pop_up menu of worksheet names. Then, left_click on any worksheet name you want to move to. If the worksheet you want isn't shown, click on the More Sheets... option. 2. Move Between Worksheets in a Workbook _ With up to 1꯸ worksheets possible in a Microsoft Excel workbook, try these keyboard shortcuts to toggle or cycle between worksheets: Next worksheet: [Ctrl] + [Page Down] Previous worksheet: [Ctrl] + [Page Up] 3. Easy Worksheet Management _ Right_click on any sheet tab (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.) for a shortcut menu of worksheet options. This is a quick way to rename, delete, add, apply colors to worksheet tabs, copy, and more. By the way, you can also rename a worksheet by double_clicking on any sheet tab (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.) to highlight the sheet name. Type a new name and press [Enter]. Tip: avoid ALL CAPS which increases the width of the sheet name and decreases how many worksheets can be displayed in one view. 4. Insert a New Worksheet _ Just press [Shift] + [F11] to create a new worksheet. 5. Fast Worksheet Copy.
