Be on the lookout

For humorous comic strips that are related to your training topic/clip them from daily newspaper, etc.

Enlarge the strips and place them onto "VISUAL SPICER" (see activity sheets) or OHP transparencies.

When doing your presentations, get your participants comments on how the strip is related to your point.
