Techy Fact

Did you know that it would take three and a half hours to pronounce the longest English word? It is 189,819 letters long! You won't be typing that word in this lesson, but you will learn how to create a heading, center your text, space out your lines, and add bullets to your documents in Microsoft Word!

In Parts 1 and 2 of this series (Related Lessons in the right-hand sidebar), you explored different fonts and sizes, adding shapes, changing font colors, and highlighting, as well as using bold, italicize and underline.

Your documents are probably starting to look pretty cool, and you may want to do even more with them! In this lesson, you will explore adding headings, centering your text, line spacing, and adding bullet points. These skills will create an even more spectacular document!
