Helps students become better speakers in their classrooms, workplaces, and communities


This top-selling, comprehensive introductory public speaking title highlights and develops the theme of “Finding Your Voice.”  It helps students develop as speakers and as people, as they gain presentation skills and confidence, discover causes that interest and engage them, and give them a sense of purpose.  This theme reinforces the book’s primary goal of helping students to become better communicators in their classrooms, workplaces and communities.

 

MyCommunicationLab is an integral part of the Osborn/Osborn/Osborn/Turner program.  MediaShare allows students to post speeches and share them with classmates and instructors.  Interactive videos provide students with the opportunity to watch and evaluate sample speeches.  Online self-assessments and pre- and post-tests help students assess their comfort level with public speaking and their knowledge of the material.
