Dear Josh, Perhaps it depends on what your computer lab has available as far as software? The lab that I work in has Claris Works and my students use a spreadsheet file to make their graphs but then copy/paste them into word processing files that can then be turned into slide shows. If you have PowerPoint which is part of Microsoft Office, it is another multi-media presentation tool. Recently I have been using http://ask.com to find things and so just for fun I just tried it and asked, "Where do I find current statistics on HIV?" and it gave me this site: http://hivinsite.ucsf.edu/stats/ The only thing that you need to remember is that while working in Ask.com it will bring up the pages in frames and so it is handy if you know how to select "new window with this frame" and that way just that page with the corresponding URL will be available so that you can bookmark it and use it again. I hope that helps. -Suzanne A., for the Teacher2Teacher service
