Some of the PPTs on here send me into a rage. A quiet inside my head rage but a rage nonetheless.  (BTW I know, I'm still grateful that people upload but come on people.....)

Pictures with watermarks so obvious you can barely see the original image, shocking lack of creativity, no thoughtful use of colour or font, Outdated use of KPOP idols or cartoon characters (Every other thing ppt has to feature Bart Simpson or Mario) and many more horrible things.

 I just saw one PPT that had a colour scheme of BROWN.

But then, how will the teacher and other students know the student is diligent?

Yeah, a lot of PPTs I end up swapping out images for ones that are more my style.  I like hunting for pictures though.

ETA. Your kids come to school to learn, not to nap because they are sick. I'm not here to coddle your sick kids I'm here to try to improve their English and give them exposure to foreigners. If your kid is so sick they are going from class to class doing nothing but napping on the tables maybe don't send them to school. This goes for things like insomnia. If your kid is suffering so much from stress or insomnia that they are completely unresponsive in school and falling asleep at the back of the class maybe give them some time off school to rest and address the problem.

But then, how will the teacher and other students know the student is diligent?

Sleeping at the back of class and refusing to do any work is not delivery it's annoying and a waste of my time and probably more harmful to the child's education than if they were kept off school while sick.
Astonishing but kids tend to do better in school when they aren't sick and have adequet rest, who knew

I use comic sans all the time, because it looks a lot like handwritten versions of the letters they're learning. Some fonts have the versions of lower case a and g that they aren't taught, or just look dull. Comic sans 4 lyfe.

Comic Sans is the best font for elementary level EFL education.

Comic sans due appreciation.  >:(

It's also a really thick font, so it's very easy to see on the monitor from anywhere in the room, especially if you use contrasting colours (like white text with black outlining).



* Hey, Pennypie, ... notice the watermarks? :D

I never understood the hate that Comic Sans gets from the public at large, I've always loved it.

Lotta 똥 references today. Animal poop. Aerial poop. Poop in large quantities. Sneaky poop.

I've seen some powerpoints here where the students would probably have been better off if the teacher had used the wingdings font.  :sad:

Google is a wondrous thing.  Once for a class I had to bring in some images for some writing activity.  I found some fairly epic pictures and a fellow student asked how I'd found them. 

Literally googled, "black and white photos."  :laugh: :laugh:
