Helping students speak in the classroom and the boardroom, THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK covers the entire process of preparing, organizing, developing and delivering a speech, making it ideal both for students taking a Public Speaking course and for experienced speakers. The twelfth edition continues to offer thorough coverage of ethics, reasoning, analyzing audience and diversity. Each chapter is designed to stand alone so that speakers can refer only to the sections that meet their needs. Speeches from students and public figures--including Congressman John Lewis’s dedication speech for the National Museum of African American History and Culture--provide relevant speech models as well as material for analysis. In addition, the MindTap for THE SPEAKER'S HANDBOOK delivers a personalized online learning experience for students while enabling instructors to easily measure skills and outcomes.
