13 Proven Ways to Get Your Message Across: The Essential Reference for Teachers, Trainers, Presenters, and Speakers.
Brewer, Ernest W.
Intended to help individuals become better educators, this book can serve as a reference for teaching fundamentals and challenge experienced teachers to expand their repertoire of skills in working with their various audiences. The presentation techniques delineated in the book have proved successful in the classroom, at conferences, and in workshops, and can be as useful with one or a few participants as with an audience of hundreds. A checklist is provided in the book to help the reader decide which method to use at which time; planning and evaluation worksheets for each method are also provided. Each communication method is discussed in a separate chapter in the book: (1) Lecture; (2) Small-Group Discussion: (3) Role-Playing; (4) Case Study; (5) Demonstration; (6) Panel; (7) Inquiry Method; (8) Buzz Groups; (9) Programmed Instruction; (10) Directed Study; (11) Experiment; (12) Brainstorming; and (13) Questioning.
