What is this?

Mentor in a Box is an education project to develop a video web library, teaching competent leadership skills to mentees of I'll Drink to That Toastmasters.

Inspired by the OpenCourseWare (OCW) Movement, the library will prepare mentees for the basics of competent leadership so they are more engaged during the weekly meetings. Mentees can search for a subject through the blog archive; play, pause and rewind tutorials; and stay up to date of new videos and postings by email.

This is certainly a work in process. So please feel free to subscribe to stay current! If you have questions, comments or would like to contribute to Mentor in a Box, email me @ mentorinabox@gmail.com. Mentor can also be found on YouTube here.

How to Build Vocabulary

With words like auspicious, expeditious and ostentatiously used in last night's meeting, I've been inspired to post about how mentees can build their vocabulary and "talk gooder" in future meetings.

This film from Coronet Instructional Films titled "Build Your Vocabulary" is a flash back to 1948, where a man named Mr. Willis aspires to improve his vocabulary.  Reminisce of your days in a classroom watching instructional videos, and gain from this superlative piece of movie magic.

Here now is the film, "Build Your Vocabulary" or what I personally like to call "What you talkin' about Willis?"
