Galvin, Kathleen M.; Book, Cassandra L.
This book is intended as a resource for teachers who are adopting a communication approach to a speech course. Organized into seven chapters which each contain behavioral and learning objectives and activities, the book is designed to help educators guide their students toward an understanding of inter- and intrapersonal communication and the development of effective communication skills. The introductory chapter discusses communication models and networks. Chapter two concerns the encoding and decoding of messages in terms of selective perception, accuracy, and interference. Chapters three through six address the numerous communication settings and relationships including intrapersonal, one-to-one, group, and one-to-group communication situations. The final chapter is devoted to the study of nonverbal communication in relation to symbols, sign and signals, space and setting, status, and intercultural influences. Also included is a list of selective terminology with parallel examples used throughout the book, special monographs, and an annotated bibliography. (Author/LG)
