    Quotes about Let's Communicate

    "I am a Speech Language Pathologist as well as a professor of Communication Studies.  As a Speech Pathologist for over 22 years, I realize the importance and the value of using a multi-modality approach to teaching.   With your text you are able to relay a great deal of abstract theory within illustrations which will appeal to the students.  I also think that they will generate conversations in the classroom." - Talia Lipton, Rockland Community College
     
    "My initial reaction is excitement. The authors differentiate themselves from other intro texts with their focused pedagogical approach combining illustrations with concepts in order to enhance student understanding of concepts." - Brent Kice, U of Houston-Clear Lake
     
    "The use of visual stimulation alongside the text is a very good choice.  Many of our students today grew up through visual stimulation both in and out of the classroom, so they are predisposed to approach learning from this perspective.  I do not feel, in contrast, that other texts on the market currently put emphasis on this style of learning to the extent that this… text would do." - Jason Nado, Blackhawk Technical College

    "Let's Communicate is a text that engages the students by having them read about the concepts, visually see the concepts come alive through the illustrations and then be able to apply the concept to real life." -- Laura Oliver, University of Texas at San Antonio
