Paper Slide Video Project


Paper Slides is a great way to show creativity and to help with pacing, and voice in a presentation. Paper Slides is exactly what it refers to, paper slides. It is like a power point, except everything is hand drawn, and voiced. It is recorded in a single shot, and if there are mistakes that's fine. I thought I would try this with my students. Below is a few resources for you and I to get familar with Paper Slides. I got the idea for this after reading this blog.



There is an awesome Wiki called paperslide. The author has some great resoureces, like this poster.

I am setting a a few Skype sessions with an other 8th grade class that is studying the Civil War.

I am also setting up a few Skype sessions with Fred Mindlin who happened to be "a participant-observer in a study of "the Hippies" in the Haight-Ashbury during the summer of 1967, and then moved to Black Bear Ranch, perhaps the only radical free commune which was started in that era and still exists and functions on the same terms." He lived at Black Bear from 1968-1979.

Below is a video he did and his reflections of living there.


Here is some of his writings about the "Hippie Movement."

I want to share with you a few websites you can use to help you with your biliobiography.
1. bit.ly For this one you will need to sign up.
2. goo.gl For this one you will need a google account.

When you are doing your bibliography and trying to cite an article you want to get some information off of you need to give the following:
  • Article titile
