Google Presentations.

Published Presentation


The first link to is to the PowerPoint I uploaded, published, & previewed; the second one is the FTP link where I saved the PDF version I downloaded from Google, since you cannot publish PDF, only "share." I did 'share' it with the instructor. PDF is preferred, since it's so compatible. It was work figuring this out...however, I believe I have a basic understanding now. *wipes brow. The presentation is a group project from my undergrad studies of applying Literary Theory & my favorite author, Sylvia Plath. Enjoy.

Jeopardy PowerPoint!

Here's the Link to my Jeopardy Game; it features 12th Grade English Literature questions concerning five studied authors [Shakespeare, Milton, Poe, Chaucer, & London.] The questions are challanging, yet possible. :o] I've never used Action Buttons before, so it did take a while to understand the format. I would like to use this game-presentation in my student teaching next fall semester!

Thank you Alex.

Here's the link to a PowerPoint presentation on the History of Book Burning. I selected this topic, as a secondary English educator, because it will hopefully motivate students to think of literature/English classes not as a requirement- but as an opportunity for knowledge. I have constructed PowerPoints and used them before in classrooms-slide shows are amazing assets/outlines for teaching.


Here's the correct link! *Added 3/13/09. Sorry!!

Well....to make a long-story short...[after repeated computer services phone calls, downloading the wrong Audacity program, being unable to successfully access my FTP] Here's the finished product! A 4:30 minute, complete with music, 9th Grade introduction lesson on Edgar Allen Poe & "The Masque of the Red Death." The only file I was able to successfully save was the incorrect voice-over....but here's the end result. Enjoy. Although this has been the most frustrating project, I am glad I now have the ability to podcast-and apologize for the late submission.

It's Poe, Yo.
