Summary

For courses in Small Group Communication

A practical approach that helps students learn how to work together in groups successfully
Working in Groups provides students with practical strategies, built on theory and research, for communicating and working successfully in groups. Utilizing the concept of balance as a unifying metaphor, authors Isa Engleberg and Dianna Wynn help students acquire the tools to apply group communication theories, methods, and skills effectively—helping them become more valuable and ethical group members. The Seventh Edition offers coverage of fresh topics as well as a new closing chapter on group presentations that better helps students master this key skill.

NOTE: This ISBN is for a Pearson Books a la Carte edition: a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf text. In addition to the flexibility offered by this format, Books a la Carte editions offer students great value, as they cost significantly less than a bound textbook.

Working in Groups, Seventh Edition is also available via REVEL™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
