    1. 1. Plot Development: Understanding the Process<br />Assignment 9 – Visuals<br />Christina Hylton<br />cdhylton@vt.edu<br />November 9th, 2008<br />This file is designed for the instructional purpose of teaching students the process of plot diagramming. It implements the use of visual representations for enhanced learning. It is meant for use in an English classroom and should be used in aiding student comprehension.<br />
    2. 2. Integration Activity: Instructions<br />9-1. Visuals often play an important role in helping an audience learn. At the same time, visuals seldom constitute all that an audience needs to learn. For this integration activity, you should identify a concept, process, or even whose learning can be enhanced through the use of visuals. After you have identified your topic, combine visuals with other instructional elements to create a presentation that will facilitate the learning expected of your audience.<br /> The presentation should be prepared in PowerPoint or an equivalent program and should contain as many slides as needed for the desired learning to occur. Also, in the Notes section of PowerPoint, identify the role that your visuals are expected to play in the learning process. The presentation of the images and elements should be consistent with the guidelines for preparing presentation graphics found on pages 74-75 in your text.<br />
