Description

Most visual, easiest to use

 

With its powerful visual design and comprehensive scope, the DK Guide to Public Speaking, 2/e, is an easy-to-navigate resource that will equip students with the tools to be effective public speakers. Based on extensive research and usability studies, this full-color, tabbed, spiral-bound guidebook gives students the practical information they seek, supported with the concepts and theories instructors want.

 

MyCommunicationLab is an integral part of the Ford-Brown program that will help enhance students’ presentation skills. With MediaShare, students can post and share videos of their speeches for peer commenting and instructor commenting and grading. Also, interactive videos provide students with the opportunity to evaluate speeches. Online self-assessments and pre- and post-tests help students assess their comfort level with public speaking and their knowledge of the material.
