Buyer Comment: "This is a hard subject to teach. I am looking forward to using this powerpoint. It looks like a great powerpoint to explain a complicated subject. Your stuff is always great!"
The student version of the power point contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
