Making the best whiteboard "chalk talk" for a faculty interview

Please suggest ways to make the best possible whiteboard "chalk talk" for a biological sciences faculty position interview at a research university in the U.S. The style of the chalk talk can vary widely by institution, and this handout describes some formats and has some suggestions. In practicing, I realize I have trouble writing legibly and remembering not to stand in front of what I've written, so I would especially love specific suggestions to address those issues.

Adjunct Instructor, Lecturer, Professor...?

My contract said "Adjunct Professor." My faculty ID card said "Adjunct Instructor." My paycheck said "Lecture/Adjunct." I never cared since this was just a two-year, part-time gig and I had no further interest in academia... but I do need to call it something in my bio. I don't have a terminal degree, suggesting and the contract was wrong and the ID card was right. I emailed the department; they said they'd check but didn't email back (I'll ask again). This was at a large private university in the U.S. I have to finalize a bio tonight -- should I just say Adjunct Instructor?
