Synopsis: Your department can acquire GPN Media s moderately priced, 24-program SPEAKING WITH CONFIDENCE series on videocassettes or as a telecourse. The series focuses on practical public speaking situations combining classical rhetorical theory with current research.
To accompany the Telecourse, Roxbury has published the Seventh Edition of Paul E. Nelson and Judy C. Pearson s CONFIDENCE IN PUBLIC SPEAKING (Telecourse Version). This 362-page paperback text offers a clear, straightforward approach on how to prepare, organize, and deliver effective public speech balancing theory and research with plentiful real-world examples. Students learn how to reduce anxiety and analyze an audience. Features of Nelson and Pearson s Seventh Edition
Reality Checks. Each chapter offers brief, boxed "Reality Checks," designed to show public speaking s relevance outside the classroom.
Technical Tips. These boxes invite students to investigate websites and other electronic sources of information to enrich their knowledge.
Graphics. New graphics show and demonstrate concepts through drawings and models.
Narratives. Completely new are the end-of-chapter narratives―stories that summarize or illustrate the content of the chapter.
Incremental Method. This text encourages a "building-blocks," incremental approach to developing communication skills.
Student Speeches. The book is replete with new examples from recent student speeches. These speeches were given by ordinary students, not professionals or prize-winning orators.
Ethics. The book covers the ethics of communication in nearly every chapter. Ethical concerns are even more relevant now that any student can purloin a well-fashioned speech from the Internet.
Diversity. This book includes speeches by a wide diversity of speakers, including African Americans, Native Americans, old and young men and women, the visually challenged, and others.
The text s Vocabulary, Application Exercises, and Application Assignments have been updated and offer practical applications.
Length. This new edition is briefer and therefore less costly to students. Six chapters from the Sixth Edition which do not appear in the Seventh Edition are available for downloading in PDF format files from our website (at no charge).
Both a completely revamped and updated Student Study Guide and Instructor s Manual/Testing Program are available from Roxbury.
About the Author: Paul E. Nelson and Judy C. Pearson are both at North Dakota State University.
