I also have been studying how to use a white board effectively in teaching. It turned out to be very helpful in one lesson, with a pretty thick language barrier. I drew a seed and labeled it faith, then drew a sapling, and finally a full tree. When I tried to explain it, he had no clue what I was saying! but when I drew the pictures, it made all the difference! I just used a notebook then, but I found a small whiteboard today, that fits in my bag :D
Elder Andrew D. Cook entered the MTC on January 15, 2014. I am excited to update as I know how he is doing, especially posting his mass emails.
Writing & Shipping information is found in the right hand column.
There is also a link to a few different translators to help us guess what Andrew said. :D Sometimes I get a better idea when I remove his ! from a word.
