Written for the hybrid course, this text teaches skills in interpersonal communication, small group discussion, public speaking, and mass media evaluation. With its distinctive student friendly voice, An Introduction to Human Communication: Understanding and Sharing, 8/e continues to coach students through the foundations of Human Communication. Integrated, thorough explanations and application questions provide a pedagogy that is both interactive and a true teaching tool. With the new edition, the authors, Judy Pearson and Paul Nelson, continue to develop their unique style by emphasizing discussion as a learning tool and study questions within the chapter as a guide.
