Practically Speaking

Fourth Edition

J. Dan Rothwell

  • Not Reading?: Practically Speaking addresses the challenge of students not reading in this course by the use of engaging stories and examples, sound scholarship and recent research, and useful tips and tricks. It shows students how to get started, practice thinking critically, and ultimately develop their own voices as they master public speaking skills. Its brevity, style, affordability, unique chapter on skepticism, and enhanced digital package all help students become successful in this course and in their lives.
  • Not Prepared?: Another challenge that faculty face is students not being prepared for this course (and for college in general). Practically Speaking provides a wealth of online resources, videos, presentation topic ideas, flashcards, quizzes, and speech activities, all to help students who struggle in this course.

New to this Edition:

  • All new print and eBook versions of the text come with free access to a full suite of engaging digital learning tools that bring the content to life and build public speaking skills.
  • A new Chapter (18) on virtual speeches prepares students for the "new normal" of online public speaking in the classroom and the world of business and the workplace.
  • Speak Up prompts throughout the text encourage unlimited speech practice, one of the main strategies for combating speech anxiety. These practice prompts can be assigned in your learning management system or on our cloud-based platform, powered by GoReact.
  • Almost 200 new references--including a wealth of new studies, surveys, and statistics on a wide variety of topics--and new scholarship bring the text thoroughly up to date.
  • New examples, stories, humorous anecdotes, and pop culture references capture and maintain student attention.
  • A greatly expanded collection of interesting and engaging photos show more than a typical variety of individuals merely speaking at podiums.
  • Model informative and persuasive speeches, Appendices A and B, have been completely updated and significantly shortened.
  • A greatly expanded and updated video program includes new Student Web speeches, YouTube videos, and TED Talks. More than 125 TED Talks and YouTube speech links at the end of chapters provide valuable opportunities for students to see high-quality, and sometimes less than commendable, speeches for illustration and analysis.
