On the back of the slate you could paint neatly a few common
phrases that anyone in a teaching position might use, such as
"stand with your feet wider" - "hold the string closer to your
cheek" - "relax" - "Please don't shoot my Knight" etc. I', sure you
get the idea. A running list could be gathered, and then if you are
assisting someone, you could flip the slate and point to a phrase
and smile...it could save an awfull lot of writing in the long run...
