Abstract

Creating homemade Outrageous Teaching Aids can add powerful teaching moments to any lesson. This Communications Tool Box was created for a junior high or high school health lesson. Inside the tool box are three different types of communication tools that we use in the real world: a megaphone, walkie-talkies, and a laptop or iphone. Students will describe why each is a good tool, but answer if it is it the best tool to use. By going through each tool, students will come to the realization that the most effective tool was the one that allowed a person to both see and hear the other person. This helps students to understand that verbal and non-verbal communication used together is the clearest form of communication.
