Projecting a Better Image: Slides and the Foreign Language Teacher. CAL-ERIC/CLL Series on Languages and Linguistics, No. 48.
This handbook demonstrates how to make and present travel slides for the language and culture course with maximum effectiveness. There are six basic rules for the teacher to follow: (1) fill the frame; (2) suppress your ego; keep yourself and your relatives out of your picture; (3) leave the audience wishing for more slides, not fewer; (4) vary your viewpoints; (5) don't show slides with flaws; and (6) know your projection equipment. An effective picture show should be able to communicate without words. Narration should never be used to compensate for bad slides. A number of illustrations are provided as examples of photographic composition for a variety of subjects. (Author/CFM)
