Dr. Carr Demonstrates
Use of Visual Aids
On Tuesday, November 16, Dr.
James Carr, Regional Director of
Religious Education for Ap
palachia Synod, showed some film
strips to the Religious Education
class and to other students inter
ested in church work. Before show
ing the films, he spoke on the
place of visual aid in the work of
the church, emphasizing the fact
that it was to enrich every other
method of teaching and was not
to serve as a substitute for no
lesson at all.
Dr Carr said that visual aid
not only made learning more perm
anent and more pleasant but also
added to the effectiveness of wor
ship programs.
The two films he showed were
“How To Use Film Strips In The
Church,” and “Two Dollars.” Since
many students were unable to see
them, ho has promised to come at
later date and show still other
strips to the entire student body.
