Summary

An audience-centered approach to public speaking

 

Public Speaking: An Audience-Centered Approach, 9/e brings theory and practice together. Its distinctive and popular approach emphasizes the importance of analyzing and considering the audience at every point in the speech-making process. This model of public speaking is the foundation of the text, and it guides students through the step-by-step process of public speaking, focusing their attention on the dynamics of diverse audiences, and narrowing the gap between the classroom and the real world.

 

MyCommunicationLab is an integral part of the Beebe/Beebe program. With extensive opportunities for the application of course content, MyCommunicationLab helps students become better speakers and master key public speaking concepts. Interactive videos provide students with the opportunity to watch and evaluate sample speeches. Online self-assessments and pre- and post-tests help students assess their comfort level with public speaking and their knowledge of the material. MediaShare allows students to post speeches and share them with classmates and instructors.
