Uses a variety of interactive tools with clear step-by-step instructions to help students actively overcome apprehension and feel confident in speech presentation.

Rather than simply describing good speaking-techniques, this highly practical, perforated workbook text gets students practicing skills through exercises, checklists, self-tests and evaluation forms. Seventeen lessons with measurable objectives give students the tools they need to assess their own progress and insure that they are creating successful speeches. The interactive structure of the text frees the instructor to spend more time working with students.

Features :

  • Contains a special "Diagnosis Folder" to help students track their own progress by recording their grades, as well as instructor comments and recommendations. Also includes a pre-course evaluation.
  • Allows students to assess their skills through measurable objectives that open each lesson, ensuring that they understand the material and can apply it.
  • Includes sample speeches and outlines to provide students with models from which to learn.
  • Makes the text lively and relevant through quotations and anecdotes from media personalities and politicians.
  • Provides role models of great speakers in the "Great Speakers" boxed feature, helping to inspire students (Lessons 3, 7, 9, 10, 14, & 15).
  • Gives students step-by-step instructions on creating a computer template to help design speeches (Appendix B).

New To This Edition :

  • Provides expanded coverage of new technologies to ensure that students are well informed about the tools available to help them prepare and deliver effective speeches.
  • Adds a complete chapter (Lesson 13) on aids, such as presentation software, multimedia, and computer-generated graphics as well as more traditional materials, teaching students to create and use aids to illustrate key points in their speeches.
  • Updates Lesson 15 on persuading to include a new section on credibility and on logical and emotional appeals.
  • Includes new information on Internet research and evaluating Internet sources to better prepare students for this widely-used research source (Lesson 7, "Selecting Data" ).
