John T. Warren, Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction, Second Edition
This exciting text for the hybrid course introduces communication theory, interpersonal communication, and public communication and culture through the lens of contemporary critical theory. The book focuses on public advocacy as a more meaningful way to approach public speaking through coverage of topics and issues that students are most passionate about. By situating communication concepts and theories within contemporary and engaging cultural scenes, the book is much more than a survey of ideas―it demonstrates the power of communication in our everyday lives.
Deanna L. Fassett, A Student Workbook for Public Speaking: Speak from the Heart
A Student Workbook for Public Speaking: Speak from the Heart asks students to think critically about the speech-making process while building their mastery of the fundamental practical skills of public speaking through a series of exercises and activities. Nineteen brief chapters cover the essentials of public speaking including selecting a topic, researching your topic, organizing your topic, overcoming speech anxiety, and delivering informative, persuasive, and special occasion speeches. Each chapter includes a concise introduction to the most important skills and concepts related to each chapter topic, and offers opportunities for critical reflection on how to use each aspect of public speaking appropriately and effectively. Each chapter is paired with an activity, checklist, or worksheet that students may use to develop their speeches, assess their performance, and chart their progress in becoming competent public speakers.
