Format: Paperback
This book is an outstanding guide to help educators teach using the Pecha Kucha method, which utilizes 20 slides showing 20 images in 20 seconds to help build language skills. Author and professor Thomas Baker explains how this Japanese technique works, and he has laid out the book in an easy-to-understand manner. The book also features many links to videos and research materials for using this method of teaching. I believe Pecha Kucha could be used for any subject and curriculum. Amazing.

Pecha -Kucha, Where have you been all my life? I had just recently heard about this technique invented by two Japanese architects when they wanted to give a spot on presentation. This method developed into a boon since 2003 by educators as an amazing tool to teach English Language Learners and more! As an educator I wish I had stumbled upon this during my years I spent in the classroom. Thomas Baker’s book is what I would highly recommend to get you started. Being a highly acclaimed educator, Professor Thomas Baker teachers English and is the coordinator of the English Department in Chile. His vast knowledge of the inner workings of this method are portrayed here in his book. What I loved about this book was the easy format to follow! It will explain how Pecha-Kucha is unlike any other teaching tool you know. It will explain how to use the diversified slide version using 20 slides with 20 seconds for each student to speak. It is not your usual power point presentation. The speaker uses 20 slides with 20 images that correspond to the message. This message must be practiced and refined. Here the speaker hones in on a perfected oral presentation. That is the beauty of Pecha - Kucha! The book contains a vast array of links to videos and research of the method which I watched and was hooked! This book is a MUST for educators. It can be used with any type of curriculum. Don’t pass this one up!

Author Thomas Baker explains the benefits of the short visual presentation of Pecha Kucha, and then explains how to use it in the classroom. Any English or speech teacher who has struggled with verbal presentations, not only assigning them, but also suffering through dozens of rambling, disjointed projects needs this book.

This short tome is an excellent instruction manual on how to implement Pecha Kucha in the classroom with happy results for both student and teacher. Baker’s easy writing style makes for an enjoyable and understandable read. Two thumbs up.

I was a teacher for almost ten years and the my first thought as I started reading Pecha Kucha and English Language Teaching was “I wish I had come across this during my teaching days’’. I love the wonderful way that Jerome Baker has set out his book. It follows the principles laid out by this method of teaching. He has incorporated images, sounds (with his links) and words to make a complete whole. The transition from one idea to the next is smooth.

I am truly taken up with this methodology, and am surprised that I have not come across it before. Yes, we have changed the way an idea or concept is conveyed to children these days, but this methodology takes it a step further. It allows interpretation within boundaries. A very informative book and a must for teachers everywhere.
