Many speech texts are either too theoretical or too bland for effective use in the typical classroom. This book provides students with enough theory and information to learn beginning speech, but emphasizes practical exercises and activities. Each unit supports one or two clear specific learning objectives with a number of different activities and assignments. The craft of public speaking is learned by doing it in a hands-on, workshop type of program. This text is the result of extensive research as well as practical experience. The techniques have been proven successful in the author's own public speaking courses. Eight chapters: Communication Apprehension: Techniques of Delivery: Listening Skills: Topic Selection, Organization, and Research; Different Modes of Speaking; Speaking with Different Purposes; Oral Interpretation of Literature; Applied Activities.
