    Default Spreading the knowledge!!!

    I'm trying to get my History teacher to start using GE & GEH for class, but she refuses. Is there an overlay somebody was impressed with that would win her favor?

    Have you tried the "overlay" section?

    It depends on what exactly she is teaching you in history. I did some overlay maps of different wars (Napoleonic Wars, War of Austrian Succession, American Civil War, WWI, Persian Wars, Hundred Years War, Thirty Years War, War of Spanish Succession, Seven Years War) where you easily demonstrate the movement of the troops by using the transparency control.

    There are also a lot of aerial pictures made in WW2 and WW1 submitted by McMaster and me (probably some more, but I don't know) to show what happened there.

    Just check it out and convince her

    OK, thanks, I just thought maybe there was an overlay you guys were really impressed with or something like that.
    and right now we are studying European History(1860s)

    My mind works better in sentences with spaces and long paragraphs loose me sometimes cause I need to picture what is going on at the same time I am reading.
