Abstract:

Public speaking : the evolving art is the first book and integrated technology package to meet the expectations of today's students while both preserving and offering innovative variations on the well-respected traditions of public speaking instruction. Throughout the text, readers benefit from the examples of four peer mentors, real people who have successfully completed the public speaking course, via short video segments designed to bring concepts and strategies to life. Public speaking : the evolving art uniquely addresses the way we live in today's increasingly digital, media-saturated society "from the abundance of information and communication options available to us, to our multi-tasking behaviour and non-linear, visual orientation" with a friendly, conversational style that draws on popular culture and current events to introduce students to the ever-changing environment of public speaking."--Publisher description.
