Powerpoint Skills:

2. Classroom idea: students re-present a HOT Log idea and explain how they have discovered a nuance or perhaps a deeper understanding of an important idea. This will create a good image bank for final presentation as well as emphasize presentation skills. Every two weeks if we have a large class again.

3. Here is a video of Gore's Jan. 2009 presentation to the Senate For. Relations Com. Note how he animates his visual presentations. How can we do this? The first 20 minutes are remarks by Sen. Kerry and Lugar; VP Gore begins his remarks at minute 20 through minute 50. Mr. Gore then takes questions at minute 50 till the end. http://www.c-span.org/Watch/watch.aspx?MediaId=HP-A-14776
