In my previous incarnation as a high school Chemistry teacher, I would begin a topic with a multi-media PowerPoint presentation.
The objectives were to:
- introduce the most important concept in the topic,
- get my students’ imagination going,
- put the topic into wider context, and
- start the topic with some…laughter!!
I thought some teachers and students might find those presentations useful. So I have decided to publish them all here as well.
If you didn’t know, I have already published the introductory PowerPoint presentations to the following topics:
The following…I have had a hard time figuring out what I used it as an introduction to. It might be an older/earlier version of the subject introduction presentation. Or, it could be the introduction to Atomic Structure.
Of course, since I didn’t record the presentation, my commentaries are missing. But it might be interesting (challenging?) for you to try and figure out what I must have accompanied each slide with!
Incidentally, when my students walked into the classroom for this particular lesson, they would have walked into a room playing Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry, and the first slide with just the first line projected on the whiteboard.
Update January 6, 2017
Google-Drive-publish function stopped working and so, finding no alternative, I have had to convert the PowerPoint presentation into a movie.
What do you think I accompanied the slides with? Or what was I trying to get across with those images?
Be my guest, have a go…in the comment section below!
