Explaining Concepts

Recall a situation when you tried to explain a concept to others. The experience may have been memorable because you were trying to explain something you cared about or because you had a hard time getting your audience to understand. Call to mind the situation, what you were trying to explain, why it was important, and what difficulties, if any, you were able to anticipate. What explanation strategies did you use? For instance, did you think of examples to make your explanation more understandable or did you compare your subject to something more familiar? Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references
