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 believe it’s a powerful tool for great presentations!
Pecha Kucha pushes the students to focus on precision and meaning by “choosing the most effective words to convey the best information in the least amount of time. . . its principles are easy to understand and apply, it’s fast, it’s efficient, it’s effective, it’s collaborative, it’s visual, it’s easy to prepare, it’s fun . . .” but it takes practice.
The use of images in Pecha Kucha makes it that much more compelling “because images are powerful conveyors of meaning. It can be as simple or complex as you want and should tell a coherent story.” Pecha Kucha purposefully sets limits on speakers and compels them to zone in on the most important part of the message they wish to convey.
I would recommend this book to any teacher of ESL students. This method is research based and aids in visual literacy as well as English comprehension.
