Monday, October 08, 2007 7:35 PM Chapter 13 Notes Visual aids- materials that the speaker shows to the audience during the speech. Benefits of Using Visual Aids Not every speech calls for visual aids. There are three main benefits of using visual aids: a. Visual aids make the speech more interesting b. Visual aids enhance the speakers credibility c. Visual aids improve comprehension and retention Visual aids can be a powerful distraction. Types of Visual Aids The varieties of visual aids can be grouped conveniently under five headings: charts, graphs, representations, objects or models, and people. Chart- a visual arrangement of words or numbers according to some obvious principle. Flowchart- a chart showing the "flow," or progress, through several steps, with alternative paths showing the outcome of different decisions. Graph- a visual display of relationships, showing how change in one thing is related to change in another.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
