​Hi, Great lesson plan. Would you possibly be able to provide access to the following resource Typography Essentials as mentioned in your slides- the link leads to a Google Drive account.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Angela, This is just the lesson plan I've been looking for! It would be great to download a copy of the presentation slides. Is that possible? Thank you so much for sharing this.

Revision: I just figured out how to download the file. Thank you!

Wonderful! Sorry I didn't get back sooner, I was on maternity leave with a brand new baby! How did the lesson work out for you?

You're most welcome! Things have been hectic recently with trying to make sure our yearbook gets submitted by deadline and my term is about to close (grades due!), so I haven't had the much needed opportunity to finish writing up the lesson plan. It will be updated when I'm on April vacation, so check back by April 21st! ​

​Angela - this seems like a great lesson. When I click on the links to your google docs it says I have to ask permission. Could you make them viewable for those with link?

Oh, sorry about that! I was pretty sure I did that. My district's Google automatically only allows those with our email extension be able to view and others need permission. I will double check the sharing settings and adjust right away!​
