    Speech Communication Made Simple 1: Student Book w/CD

    Speech Communication Made Simple 1: Student Book w/CD

    Speech Communication Made Simple 1 incorporates a scaffolded approach to the development of students’ public speaking skills. At the beginning of each chapter, students participate in a directed discussion of a model presentation as a prelude to preparing, writing, and delivering their own speeches. The next series of steps focus on skill building. Students read guidelines for selecting an appropriate topic; learn language needed to speak about the topic; fill out worksheets to help them organize information into an introduction, body, and conclusion; and prepare note cards for use during their speech. In the practice phase of the lesson, students practice their presentation out loud and complete a speech checklist to confirm all required presentation elements are included. Having worked through all these steps, students are ready to deliver their speech.
