One common, effective teaching technique is a short 1- 3 minute oral presentation that ends with "the point is." The following personal experiences or reasonable-to-me hearsay incidents are presented in the spirit that "every dive should have the same number of ascents as descents." The stories I use for basic classes are typically used during pool sessions (when time is expensive and best spent in the water). My University of Michigan teaching assistants have heard these so many times, they have labeled them "war stories" and assigned them numbers.
Everyone who dives has stories; these are mostly mine.
