  • Choose ONE item from the "Topics / Events" column. Provide details and in-depth study using Photo's / Slideshow. This is where students should spend the most time. A 'slideshow' using photos from the era should be created and embedded into the Glog. You must use Powerpoint for this portion. We will then convert the powerpoint to a Youtube video to import into Glogster. Text is required. Sound is a bonus.
