Video for visual aids

The Simpsons: Season 6, episode 14

Videoclip available here;
See episode description here

This Simpsons clip contains features yet another town meeting. The residents have gathered to hear the town’s plan to protect them as a comet is hurtling toward the town. It is a nice example of visual aids.

Some follow-up questions for students:

  • What two types of visual aids do we see used here?
  • Are they used effectively?
  • What function does each serve?

About teachingpublicspeaking

I believe public speaking can go from most dreaded class to favorite class. I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
