Teachers may need help in finding strategies that reach the different learning styles of their students. Word has features that support differentiating instruction and allow accessibility for the sight impaired and even for old eyes.

  1. Use the zoom pull-down feature on the standard toolbar to magnify the text on screen without changing the point size in the document.
  2. Change the display so it is easier on your eyes. Under Preferences go to General and then to Blue background, white text. This does not always work with tables.
  3. Go to View to Full Screen to make more room on the screen for your document. This removes all the toolbars and icons so that all you are looking at is the document.
