The Fifth Canadian edition of Everyday Encounters by Wood/Schweitzer is a theory-based interpersonal communication textbook, unique in its emphasis on theories, research, and skills with attention paid to trends in Canadian social life. The conversational writing style engages students, helping them to connect what they are learning to their personal experience. Social diversity - including awareness of race, economic class, gender, age, and sexual orientation - is woven into discussions of communication theory and skills. This resource also addresses communication challenges, confusions, and issues within friendships, romantic relationships (including abuse and violence between intimates); long-distance relationships, and the use of communication to negotiate safer sex in an era shadowed by HIV and AIDS. MindTap is now available for Everyday Encounters. A fully online learning solution, MindTap combines all student learning tools-readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments-into a single Learning Path that guides the student through the curriculum. Instructors can personalize the experience by customizing the presentation of these learning tools to their students, even seamlessly introducing their own content into the Learning Path.
