  • Provides greater emphasis on using theory and research to develop teaching philosophies.
  • Adds research on motivating students to prepare for participation in classroom discussions.
  • Focuses more attention on communication ethics, including the NCA creed and case studies, to draw students’ attention to this core topic.
  • Adds research on ableism, classism, sexism, and ethnocentrism in Chapter Ten.
  • Offers a more streamlined version of the Future Reference boxes (user-friendly practical applications of theory) to help students better see how the material can be put to use in their own classrooms.
