For nearly 10 years, Bri has focused on creating content to address the questions and concerns educators have about teaching classes, preparing students for certifications, and making the most of the AES curriculum system.
Each chapter is focused on a single learning outcome, as described in the chapter title.
These learning outcomes are broken down into detailed tasks, which are explained using both text and images.
Overall, the chapters are meant to teach these skills in relation to real-world scenarios to help students better understand their importance.
Additionally, this book includes specific chapters that teach students how to use multiple applications together to create more detailed projects.
Any teacher who wants to incorporate real-world examples that use multiple applications would find this text useful.
However, similarly to the previous book on the list, this one includes both Office 2019 and 365. That means it’s best for you to review each chapter in detail prior to letting your students get to work.
3. Building a Foundation with Microsoft Office 2019 & 365
Authors: Alec Fehl, Alex Scott, Ben Linford, and Ian Ewell
Each individual chapter focuses on one aspect of the related application, such as working with tables in Word or formatting worksheets in Excel.
Within a chapter, you’ll find step-by-step instructions with images that walk students through each concept and skill they will learn.
Along with the standard instructions, this textbook has “Inside OUT” sections highlight related shortcuts and advanced options for some features.
Best of all, Microsoft Office 2019 Inside Out includes sections on Microsoft Outlook and Publisher.
That means if your standards include objectives for either of those applications, this book could be just what you’re looking for!

Now that you’ve learned about four common Microsoft Office 2019 textbooks, you should have a better idea of what you want (and don’t want) in a new textbook.
As you research further, it’s important to consider that there are other instructional material options than just textbooks!
Some teachers choose test prep materials while others create their own curriculum from free resources found on the Internet.
In our experience, we’ve found that teachers have the most success teaching Microsoft Office when using a digital curriculum system.
One of the biggest reasons teachers have made the switch from textbooks to digital curriculum is that a digital system keeps up with changes to applications without you needing to purchase an entirely new resource!
