The definition of a handout is written material given to inform or provide additional information, or a gift of food, money or clothing given for free to people or organizations.
- A gift, as of food, clothing, or money, given to the needy.
- A folder or leaflet circulated free of charge.
- A sheet or sheets of paper containing topical information, distributed to people attending a speech, lecture, or meeting.
- A prepared news or publicity release.
- The odds are slim that a handout will it all the way home, undamaged, and even slimmer that Mom or Dad will find it at a time when they actually can read it thoroughly.
- The eye moves from left to right so in general, if you have a handout with a lot of words you want to add a megaphone or something else in the top left hand corner.
- However, schools now have one ace in the hole that makes it easier: the simple addition on the handout of a URL at the school website.
- This means that the parent is assured that they can find the information online, even if the handout gets lost.
- You can download a PDF handout with illustrations for the steps of this project on the Instructables website.
