Let’s Communicate is everything you want in a human communication text—substantive, engaging, and fun. Created by communication scholars Douglas Fraleigh, Joseph Tuman, and Katherine Adams, Let’s Communicate takes their combined 100 years’ worth of research and teaching experience to present all the basic human communication concepts with unique attention paid to technology, culture, gender, and social justice. The authors provides provocative, real-life examples and a special focus on skills that together make communication meaningful for students both in and out of the classroom—all at an affordable price. Let’s Communicate is also the first human communication text to use hundreds of hand-drawn illustrations that help students understand and retain important concepts.

Let’s Communicate matches cutting-edge content with powerful digital tools accessible through LaunchPad, a learning platform that that contains hundreds of videos, LearningCurve (our adaptive quizzing program), various assessment options, video assignment tools, instructor supplements, and a full e-book

Nobody likes criticism. Handled poorly, it too often stings and breeds resentment—and most of us try to avoid it at all costs. But criticism—crafted carefully and communicated skillfully—promotes trust and respect, motivates individuals, and serves as a catalyst for change. It has the ability to turbocharge workplaces and careers. If that sounds far-fetched, it’s because few understand how to properly give and receive the kind of critical feedback that brings positive results. The Truth Doesn’t Have to Hurt rejuvenates this powerful but neglected art form. Executives, managers, team leaders—anyone who needs to temper praise with a dose of reality—will learn to: Deliver the truth and have it taken as helpful • Create an atmosphere of acceptance • Avoid mistakes that sabotage an exchange • Control how they receive criticism so they benefit—even if it’s badly presented Ignoring problems or always saying nice things will only maintain the status quo. This research-backed book delivers proven techniques and tools for motivating people and triggering improvement—swiftly and painlessly.

From academic essays to blogs, magazine articles to social media posts, newspaper editorials to public service announcements, and advertisements to emails, The Real World Reader brings together a wide collection of formal writing with an equally diverse array of popular writing from everyday life. This innovative rhetorical reader for first-year composition courses divides the process of rhetorical analysis into logically sequenced steps that focus on five key concepts-purpose, audience, argument, voice, and credibility. Author James Miller encourages students to use this step-by-step process in order to identify, analyze, and master the multiple modes of writing that they will encounter at school, work, and home. Features * Uses a rhetorical framework to teach writing--rather than examining different modes of writing in isolation--and reveals what all forms of writing have in common * Introduces rhetorical concepts through a variety of informal and formal writing examples, showing students how rhetorical patterns intersect * Combines step-by-step writing instruction with a scaffold of sixty-seven diverse readings, allowing students to critically write and read four distinct types of selections: informal, formal, and academic selections and sample student essays * Connects rhetorical analysis to cultural analysis with content that ranges from debates on multiculturalism to discussions of online privacy and from critiques of modern political campaigning to analyses of modern consumerism * Focuses on familiar, "real world" writing, demonstrating the important role that writing plays in everyday life

Do You Talk Funny?

7 Comedy Habits to Become a Better (and Funnier) Public Speaker

Author: David Nihill

Publisher: BenBella Books, Inc.

ISBN: 1942952287

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 208

View: 9654

Public speaking can be terrifying. For David Nihill, the idea of standing in front of an audience was scarier than cliff jumping into a thorny pit of spiders and mothers-in-law. Without a parachute or advanced weaponry. Something had to change. In what doesn’t sound like the best plan ever, David decided to overcome his fears by pretending to be an accomplished comedian called "Irish Dave" for one full year, crashing as many comedy clubs, festivals, and shows as possible. One part of the plan was at least logical: he was already Irish and already called Dave. In one year, David went from being deathly afraid of public speaking to hosting a business conference, regularly performing stand-up comedy and winning storytelling competitions in front of packed houses. And he did it by learning from some of the best public speakers in the world: stand-up comedians. Do You Talk Funny?: 7 Comedy Habits to Become a Better (and Funnier) Public Speaker shows how the key principles of stand-up comedy can be applied to your speaking engagements and presentations to make you funnier, more interesting, and better looking. (Or at least two of the three.) Whether you are preparing for a business presentation, giving a wedding toast, defending your thesis, raising money from investors, or simply want to take on something you're afraid of, this book will take you from sweaty to stage-ready. You’ll learn how to: - Craft a story and content that your audience will want to listen to - Find the funniest parts of your material and how to get to them faster - Deal with stage fright - Master the two most important parts of your performance: timing and delivery Ten percent of the author's proceeds from this book will go to Arash Bayatmakou via Help Hope Live until he is fully back on his feet and thereafter to one of the many facing the same challenges after suffering a severe spinal cord injury.
