PUBLIC CONVERSATIONS: Building Skills and Confidence is an exciting new concept for the college and university classroom. It features tear-out pages to accommodate the needs of faculty and students to communicate through data sheets, in-class evaluations, hypothetical dilemmas for ethical decision-making,and self-assessment sheets for such areas as listening and vocal qualities.
Traditional topics such as demonstrative, informative, and persuasive speaking are covered with examples and ideas for creativity. In addition, this text features ways to prepare for employment interviews, suggestions on becoming successful team participants in group discussions, and ideas for effective storytelling. It accomplishes its goals through the use of short chapters, readily understandable language, and a wide variety of "communications aerobics" that the students can use as they hone their communication skills.
