The Role of the Teacher-Made Visual Aid in the Adult ESL Classroom.
Green, Barbara Gillian
Teacher-made visual aids (as opposed to the commerical variety) for adults are evaluated. These materials are put in perspective through a determination of their relationship to current theories of visual learning, design, color, and size. Reasons for their continued applicability for adult students are considered. A description of the uses of a number of visuals (which are in the text) is included, and suggestions for the creation of similar visuals are offered. It is concluded that teacher-made visuals have an important immediacy and remain valuable in instruction in English as a second language as much for adults as for children. (Author)
