It was a wonderful webinar! I can't wait to create some slides to use with my Social Studies class on our unit of famous landmarks in Washington, DC

I may have to watch this one a few times. Deb, you put so much information into your lessons! Thank You!
This is very basic but not basic enough for me! I do not know how to apply the master slide to every show. There are always things that are presumed and I wonder if maybe there need to be BASIC presentations for people like me who know so little
Lots to learn and explore. I will review this video several times. Thank you for creating an excellent resource!
