The website betterexplained.com uses the ADEPT method to explain concepts in a very effective way:
- Analogy: Tell me what it’s like so that I can anchor it within my current understanding.
- Diagram: Help me visualize it to engage that part of the brain.
- Example: Allow me to experience it (show don’t tell).
- Plain English: Describe it with everyday words.
- Technical definition: Discuss the formal details.
