Packed with hands-on applications, PUBLIC SPEAKING: CHOICES AND RESPONSIBILITY, 2e delivers a practical and up-to-date public speaking text based on rhetorical theory. It emphasizes the role of choices and civic engagement/responsibility throughout in narrative, features, and examples. Giving students valuable insight, it describes the audience as a "public" to which the speaker belongs, rather than as a separate entity defined only by demographics. The Second Edition includes new coverage of Monroe's Motivated Sequence, discussions of TED talks and PechaKucha, extended treatment of fallacies, and expanded emphasis on outlining. New Remix features apply the latest research in business and social science to public speaking skills. In addition, MindTap® digital learning solution helps instructors engage and transform students into critical thinkers.
