*What is a locked PowerPoint?
The PowerPoint file you have downloaded has limited editability. It is essential that I keep to the terms of use for the clip art and fonts used so you cannot and should not edit the slides that are created by me. See my terms of use below.
So you will be able to open Dulce Et Decorum Est file in PowerPoint and this means you can use the slides as suit your needs and your classes.
