Responsible Public Address. Third Edition.
Vander Kooi, Daryl; Veenstra, Charles
This textbook aims to help the beginning speaker understand what is necessary for a person to give a competent speech. Although only actual practice can give the necessary confidence, use of the advice given in this textbook, and its application in public speaking situations, will significantly improve an individual's competence in public speaking and help control stage fright. The textbook also pays attention to the second part of the public speaking situation--developing listening skills--and to helping maintain a proper balance between both sides of communication. Chapters in the textbook are: (1) Communication and Public Address; (2) Communication and Ethics; (3) Listening; (4) Speech Preparation; (5) Organization; (6) Informative Speaking; (7) Audio-Visual Aids; (8) Persuasion; (9) Credibility; (10) Audience Analysis; (11) Evidence; (12) Reasoning; (13) Nonverbal Communication; (14) Voice; (15) Language; and (16) Speech Criticism. Appendixes contain instructions for speeches, evaluation forms for speeches, and a test bank. (NKA)
