Slide Examples

Kaitlyn likes to begin class with a slide of newspaper headlines that the students read out loud. Newspapers were considered the social media of the day and it helps students to connect with the material when framing it this way. Weldon then asks the students what these headlines might mean and how they might connect to the daily lecture. Below are a handful of slides that Weldon uses when teaching her class.
