How to Use Magruder's US Government e-book

Today Kevin O'Keefe will be presenting to our county social studies teachers on how to use our e-book for Magruder's US Government which most of the country uses.  Perhaps you can find someone of value here.

The in-service goes through how one should start teaching with an e-book from using a scavenger hunt (just as you might do with a paper textbook), to how to split the screen of your computer (so students can see both the e-book and the work they are doing) and finally some lessons using the e-book.  We use Magruder's for our standard government book (as does about 90% of the country) so hopefully this should help a lot of you.
