For my second google docs assignment I created a PowerPoint to help teach my students steps to follow when they are angry. One of the common characteristics of autism is lack of social skills. To help children with autism teachers often use social stories to help demonstrate appropriate social skills in a given situation. I have one little boy who is very violent when he gets mad. I would use this presentation to teach him how to calm down when he is upset. On the last slide I created a quiz for him to take to show me what he remembered from the presentation.
I found using PowerPoint on google docs to be easy for the most part. To add pictures I saved clip art from Microsoft word in to paint. After I saved it in my paint program then I was able to insert the picture. I'm not sure if there is an easier way to do this. If there is, can someone show me next time we are in class? Other then that I found PowerPoint easy to use and a good resource for creating presentations. I really like how in google docs it automatically saves you work!
