Public Speaking 2 Edition and Student CD-ROM: Text with Free Student Speeches CD
Providing a comprehensive, balanced treatment of skill and theory, combined with a robust video supplement package, Public Speaking offers the greatest flexibility of any introductory text in the market. The text's accessible approach to communication presents the process of constructing, researching, and delivering speeches as a means of building a bridge between speaker and audience. The Second Edition offers students two simple ways to access the innovative video program: on CD-ROM packaged free with the text or on the text's companion web site. Designed to allow instructors to integrate text and video in a visually oriented approach to learning, the videos strengthen the hands-on pedagogical nature of the text material. In addition the new technology creates greater opportunities for distributed learning. Video content includes examples of effective (and less effective) speakers addressing diverse audiences in business, school, and community settings; illustrations of audience-specific approaches to the same topic; and interviews with students, professionals, and community leaders about issues they face when preparing or delivering speeches. Early treatment of communication apprehension combined with a first speech assignment helps students overcome anxiety from the start. Up-to-date coverage of the Internet as a research tool includes a focus on critical analysis of content and additional Internet activities, including Connecting to the 'Net boxes. The Portfolio feature offers opportunities for creating an e-portfolio journal. A commitment to TA training features a training guide and videos, with sample integrated syllabi for making optimal use of classroom videos.
