  1. hey! I attended the annual social studies conference a few weekends ago, and wanted to know how to show these powerpoints so they are larger!?! Thanks!

  2. Hi Melissa,

    If you go to the Slideshare site, there is an option to download the powerpoints there. Then you can save it to your desktop or jump drive and show it full screen. The Slideshare icon in the bottom righthand of the powerpoints should take you right to my profile where all of my powerpoints are stored. If that isn’t working (and sometimes it acts up) there is a link to my profile towards the top of each page on the blog. Thanks!

  3. Thank you so much for the wonderful resources! I’m so torn between celebrating a free vacation and wondering how I’m going to do SOL prep with one less week of teaching. With your help, I may just manage!
