Introduction to Mr. Schwarten's Video and Lessons

Hi everyone,

You should have all been directed to this site from Edline.

I am going to be using this blog to post the videos that I use in class from youtube and some of my lessons that uses media. Since Edline is limited in what i can post I am using this format to help you all out. Not all of the videos we watch in class will be posted on this site, due to the fact I only have some of them on VHS (Such as Roots). Hopefully this will help you become more successful in class and will provide you with an oppertunity to watch the videos we watch if you are sick.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask me.

Mr. Schwarten
