It's Here!
PowerPoint Workshop for Teachers is Available!

By Janet Caughlin, Workshop Books
Last Update: November 28, 1999

Finally, there's a book on learning PowerPoint written just for teachers! I am happy to announce that my new PowerPoint Workshop for Teachers book is now available for purchase from Tom Snyder Productions!

It's easy to create wonderful graphic slide shows in just a few minutes with PowerPoint."
This book is the first in an exciting, all new series of tutorial and lesson plan books covering the Microsoft Office program. Like my Claris/AppleWorkshop books and the other books in the Workshop Books family, PowerPoint Workshop for Teachers takes you step-by-step through all aspects of the program as you create presentations to use in your classroom. Trainers will appreciate that the key feature and screen differences between PowerPoint 97, 98 and 2000 versions are illustrated in detail (again, as with previous Workshop Books). The book also features a wide range of lesson plans, handouts, and curriculum-based slide shows created by students and teachers across the country. You'll find clip art, sound files, and all the PowerPoint viewers and translators on the CD-ROM.

You'll find that it's easy to create wonderful graphic slide shows in just a few minutes with PowerPoint. The first two activities in the book take you through the creation of slide show screen savers that let people know where you are when you leave your classroom and when you'll be back. Using the eye-catching WordArt option, you'll make the text look professional, and add sound effects that definitely catch your attention. As the activities continue, you'll learn to insert pictures, and other sounds and movies into slide shows. You won't believe the cool shows you can create in just a few minutes.

I can't wait for you to try PowerPoint Workshop for Teachers! Let me know what you think of it, OK?
