Scholastic Keys: Spell Check

When teaching students Max Write (primary version of Microsoft Word), remember that spell check works a little bit differently. For example, in the regular Microsoft Office when students are presented with a red squiggly line underneath of a word, they know that they have spelled the word wrong. Right-clicking on the red squiggly line would give the student choices of correct words to choose from. Right-clicking on the red squiggly line DOES NOT WORK in Max Write. When students see the red squiggly line in Max Write, they need to click the "spell check" button on the top toolbar to activate spell check.

**Please note: the spell check button is not available in Max Show (PowerPoint), even though the red squiggly line appears underneath the misspelled word. Max Count (Excel) and Max Data (Access) does not offer any spell check features at all.
