Using Your Presentation Package

Last updated July 30, 2020


The Dynamic Physical Education for Secondary School Students Presentation Package, Ninth Edition, has more than 200 slides. These slides contain some of the art, tables, and content photos from the textbook as well as text slides highlighting the book’s most important concepts. You can add, modify, or delete slides as you see fit. By using the Outline view on the left navigation bar, you can see the slide titles to quickly identify what is included in each file and select the slide you want to use. Slide titles for figures, tables, and content photos usually are the figure number or table number, but in some instances a more descriptive title may be used, such as Essential Components of a Quality Program. The order of the figures, tables, and content photos in the presentation package matches the order of those same items in the book.
