Communicate!

Передня обкладинка
Now in its 15th edition, this groundbreaking human communication text equips students with the communication skills they need to be successful communicators. COMMUNICATE! engages students in active learning through theory, application and tools for practicing and assessing specific communication skills in interpersonal, intercultural, group, and public speaking settings, and in face-to-face and virtual environments. Skill-building exercises, including speech-plan action step activities, guide students through the speech preparation process. COMMUNICATE! provides lively contemporary examples and sample student speeches that ground theory, increase comprehension, and help students become skillful communicators. The role of ethics in communication is integrated throughout the text, as is the role of technology and social media.
