PUBLIC SPEAKING: THE EVOLVING ART, 2ND EDITION/ENHANCED is a fully integrated book and technology program that matches the expectations of today's students while preserving the well-respected traditions of public speaking instruction. This program teaches the fundamental goals of public speaking while exploring the contexts and media that inform public speaking today. The text comes automatically packaged with a printed access code to a variety of online tools: CourseMate (which houses the interactive activities); Speech Builder Express, Speech Studio 2.0, and access to the eBook. Each chapter's material, both in the book and online, takes students through a sequence that starts with reading the text, moves to watching unique integrated videos, segues to companion interactive activities that ask students to apply chapter concepts in hypothetical scenarios, and then to advance work on their own speech project. A unique, practical pedagogical system in the text -- Read it, Watch it, Use it, Review it -- gives structure to each chapter, and directs students to the easy-to-access online material. Apply It Boxes give students an opportunity to use their newly-gained public speaking skills in situations outside of the classroom. PUBLIC SPEAKING: THE EVOLVING ART, 2ND EDITION/ENHANCED is the first of its kind to adapt the format and delivery of information based on extensive feedback from hundreds of students and instructors who have used the package in their course. Based on the text's READ It, WATCH It, USE It, REVIEW It pedagogical structure, 93% of students who class-tested found the Speech Buddy Videos helpful, and 96% of students would recommend this book/package to their instructor.
