In this video, you will format your table.

"Formatting" means to adjust the font and other visual aspects of a document to suit your project.

Formatting the table and text makes it easier to read.

The first thing you'll add is a table header.

A "table header" is a row at the top of a table used to label each column.

The header shows that all the information in a row is related.

To begin, add your table header at the top.

For this table add the headings: class elements, strengths, areas to improve, and, help.

Then, format the text in the top cells to make them bold.

Change the color of the header row so it stands out.

Choose a light color so you can easily read the text.

Next, pin the header row.

If your table spans multiple pages, you can pin your header row so it repeats at the top of each page that the table spans.

Then, begin your list under the header, "Class Elements."

Under this header, add the various types of assignments you expect to have in your class.

For example, homework, classwork, pop quizzes, exams and group projects might be some types of work you are expected to do.

If you’re not sure what kind of work you are expected to do, ask for help!

You can check your class syllabus or ask your teacher or a classmate for this information.

This table has space for five different types of class elements.

If you need more space, add as many rows as you need.

If you have too many rows, that’s okay.

You can easily delete a row if needed.

Next, make the text in the"Class Elements" column bold.

And change the color ofthe "Class Elements" cells.

Choose a light color again so you can read the text.

With bold text and added color, your table is easy to read and navigate.

It will also be easy for anyone else to read when you share it with a teacher or friend.

Next, add some information above the table with your teacher’s name, email and office hours.

It will be helpful to have all this information in one place so you can easily access it when you need help.

You may need to ask your teacher for their email address if you do not already have it.

Many schools assign a school counselor, advisory or homeroom teacher as additional support for students.

Add the contact information for your teacher and any other educational professionals you trust.

Now it’s your turn: Add the headers, pin the header row, add the class elements, add color, bold the text, and add your teacher’s information.


  1. Add the headers.
  2. Pin the header row.
  3. Add the class elements.
  4. Add color.
  5. Bold the text.
  6. Add your teacher’s information.
