REVEL for Mastering Public Speaking shows students both the hows and the whys of public speaking using an instructional approach that positions the instructor as a “guide on the side” rather than a “sage on the stage.” By challenging students to make the decisions required of public speakers, the text empowers them to take responsibility for their own learning. REVEL for Mastering Public Speaking reflects the current twenty-first century realities that have altered our expectations of what a public speech can accomplish, including new media and emerging technologies. At the same time, the authors’ basic instructional approach remains focused on the key ingredients of effective speech, including sensitive audience analysis, adequate research, clear organization, and dynamic delivery.

REVEL is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL offers an immersive learning experience designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn. Enlivening course content with media interactives and assessments, REVEL empowers educators to increase engagement with the course, and to better connect with students.


NOTE: REVEL is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone REVEL access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use REVEL.
