My pet rock, a picture of Charlie my dog, my motorcycle racing trophy … these are just a few of the things I brought to to school for Show and Tell. I excitedly displayed the item and told the story associated -- how I bought my pet rock with money I had earned and saved making it super special to me; how I tried to tie Charlie my dog to a chair to “teach” him reading; how I really won the racing trophy because there were only 2 racers in my age group and I won 2nd place. See, the visual alone didn’t tell the story, but the story would not have been as engaging without showing the item. Good communication and training involve showing and telling. Using pictures, models, graphic organizers, even sticky notes can help show your ideas, but you must also tell your ideas with your own words. etc Strategies believes that by incorporating Show and Tell into client education, employee training, leadership development, and team building, these communication and learning experiences can be more effective and successful.
