  • Timber Marking
    • Instructor’s note: About this slideshow
    This slideshow includes somewhat detailed slide notes. The notes convey the key ideas of each slide. This should allow the slideshow to be delivered well by any knowledgeable instructor. Note that several slides include built-in animations. The word [Click] in the notes is the cue to advance to the next animation. In order to deliver the slideshow well, the instructor must be familiar with the sequence of animations and slides. Adequate preparation is important. Like every slideshow, this one is best delivered in the instructor’s own voice, not by reading the notes. The notes should be viewed as a guide, NOT a script . Any questions about this slideshow can be directed to Eli Sagor at [email_address] .
