History 12-1: Powerpoint basics and intro to sketchnoting

Today I reviewed so basic design skills in PPT.  Specifically, I demonstrated how to create a "floating" "table of contents" text box at the top of the slides.  I also discussed slide backgrounds and techniques to add interest while still allowing for easy reading.  We talked about "dead space," limiting text, animations and font selections.

Next we watched Sunni Brown's TED Talk on doodling.  We then practiced some basic sketchnoting skills.  We'll carry on with that tomorrow as well as wrapping up the Paris 1919 content, including the League of Nations.  You should expect your first unit test on Friday.
