Is it possible for me to see a couple slides about the reading & interpreting poem section from your Odyssey powerpoint? Our textbook doesn't cover the whole book either, so I'm curious how close your stuff aligns with our book. THANKS!

We would be happy to show you a few slides. We used the adaptation from Prentice Hall (now Pearson) 2002 version. Please go to our website (link below) where you will find a 20 slide demo of our Odyssey product.

I can't seem to open this in Powerpoint editing mode. It only opens as a presentation and quits when I press escape. Is there any way to view it in editing mode so that I can flip through the slides in an easier way?

Hello

Many thanks for your excellent work.

Hi,

I bought this yesterday and and only got a 7 slide powerpoint instead of the 85 page product that is advertised. Please look into this and fix the problem. The activities looked promising and I want time to look them over.

Buyer re: Macbeth Novel Study Unit ~ Includes Reproducible Graphic Organizers
Hello it is me again.
I am the teacher who purchased Romeo and Juliet and you sent me "Attached, you should find a downloadable PDF of the slides at-a-glance for the Romeo and Juliet unit. I hope this helps you in your lesson planning. Good luck, and please if you have the time, let us know how your students liked the presentation and if it assisted them in the understanding of the play."

I would like to request this same consideration for Macbeth as well as your lovely break down of how the slides are laid out, you provided a similar write up for me for R & J. This has helped so much in our use of the R&J power point. Thank you in advance for your fine help and understanding

Buyer
I just purchased Romeo and Juliet from your company on the Teacher pay Teacher web site.
I must admit I am a bit confused as to how this power point will be as beneficial to me. I previewed this product and had high hopes of its attributes and wrongly assumed that I am the teacher would have some administrative control over the product.

Here are my concerns:
I can not see all the slides at once, like I would be able to do in a traditional power point presentation, there by making it very difficult to see the whole program and make constructive lesson plans. I can not see flipping through each slide individually, what a time drain.( I respectively disagree with your comment)
I am not aware how I would save this power point to my computer as doesn't seem to be this option when I right click.
I am unable to print any of the pages, such as the character list, so that my students may take full advantage of the program.
I am concerned that I made a bad purchase, even though the preview and product looks sound. It does not offer enough flexibility in order to be useful in the classroom.

Please advise,
Tracy Battles

Buyer re: Romeo and Juliet Novel Study Unit ~ Includes Reproducible Graphic Organizers
yes, How am I suppose to save this power point? Will I be able to print individual slides? How can I look over all the slides at once in order to make lesson plans with out going through each slide one at a time.

Thank you,
I have purchased this item and now I am not sure how best to use it.

Hello! You cannot print individual slides nor will you need to. Each section is separated by Objectives which will easily allow you to plan what you want to present each day as well as help align the content to your standards. You will want to preview each objective section before presenting to your students. The program will make teaching the novel much easier as it breaks it down and summarizes each Act and scene for you. Let us know if you have additional questions.
You can also view our website and contact us through contact@simply-novel.com.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Janice Williamson and Barbara Lane, together have over thirty-five years teaching experience. We completed our Master of Arts in Teaching with a specialization in Reading together which strengthened what we already knew: students need linguistic and visual learning aides to strengthen their comprehension skills. Simply Novel presented its innovative learning tool at San Bernardino County's VPSS Training in February and June of 2010, and was warmly received!

MY TEACHING STYLE

We believe in hands on, project-based learning that meets the needs of diverse learners, allowing students to demonstrate mastery and apply learning in the real-world.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Simply Novel Presented its innovative learning tool to San Bernardino's VPSS Training in February and June of 2010. Cleveland Job Corps cites Simply Novel as a great asset for student literacy. “ Used as a tool with Job Corps students since March of 2013, Simply Novel has contributed to improved student TABE® literacy ranking by 44 points. ” - Ramon Serrato CEO Serrato Corp

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Janice's teaching experiences include grade levels English 9 -11 as well as reading, Advanced Placement, and inclusion. Barbara's teaching experiences include Language Arts and yearbook grades 7-8, English 9, English Honors grade 9, EL and British Literature grade 12. Both teachers hold a Master of Arts in Teaching with a specialization in Reading.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Together, we were determined to apply these practices in our curriculum. After spending another summer vacation working, and talking with general and special education colleagues, we soon learned that what we were looking for wasn't available. And so, Simply Novel ~ a new idea was born. Today, standards direct educators to meet the needs of all students, inclusive of a variety of learning styles. Looks good on paper, but for those of us in the classroom, it isn't always the reality. The struggle to meet the rigors of a diverse classroom as well as the additional demands placed on educators presents a universal problem - the time factor. The product Simply Novel is not intended to replace the teacher; instead, it supports good teaching practices. Used appropriately, Simply Novel provides a foundation for learning. Prompted by cues, questions, and advanced organizers, Simply Novel ~ a new idea allows the teacher to focus on what really matters in the novel.
