  1. Ellen,
    Could you please let me know how to print the slides of this power point? Also there is an indication to pause for a short video. How can we access that link?

    Thank you for posting. It is helpful to our teachers.


    • Hi Nancy,
      If you right click during the presentation you will have the option to “end show” at the bottom. Once you do that you can do all the things you normally do with a powerpoint including print the slides. The video is on the page with SMP#2. While in the presentation you should be able to click on the teacher’s picture to see the vimeo video.

  2. Ellen,
    This looks like a fabulous power point. Do you have “help text” or an actual presentation using this power point on hand to support the power point?

  3. This PowerPoint will really help teacher understand the SMPs. Thank you for sharing! Like Nancy, I had trouble opening the video and I did click on the teacher’s picture.

    • Thanks Beth,
      I’ve tried this on a few different computers and am not having the problem so I am guessing about solutions here. You have to click the picture, not the white box in front of her. To help this problem and Nancy’s above I put the slides here too without opening directly into a presentation. You can check the hyperlink in the slide by right clicking on the teacher’s picture and selecting edit hyperlink. It should link to this site

      The problem could also possibly be the software to view videos on your computer?

  4. I tried the suggestions above to access other PPT options. However, when I right click I only have options to go next slide, previous slide, go to a particular slide, or end show. When I select “end show” it closes the file completely – no other other options come up to print, etc. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Kristine,
      I also posted the version titled “slides” that opens automatically as the editable version. Give this one a try!

  5. I could see the video. I had to run the slide show first, then click on the pic while the slide show was in run
    I appreciate the ppt. It will be very useful in out pd.

  6. I would love to have an electronic copy of this. The format in which it is currently posted I can neither edit or print. Could you make it available?


    • Thanks Julie,
      If you look in the Tools section it is in slide form as well. That should be what you are looking for!
