Complete Coverage, Innovative Approach. Unrivaled student support for the many stages of speech-making.
With an array of speechmaking strategies designed to inform students’ own speech choices, Speak Up! includes practical suggestions for everything from brainstorming a topic to crafting a conclusion. Strategies are cleanly and clearly outlined, making them easy to understand and apply in students’ own work.
Numerous real-world examples model concepts and keep students engaged. Each chapter opens with a contemporary vignette that introduces key ideas, while examples throughout show situations from the classroom, workplace, community, and public sphere—with an emphasis on technology and civic engagement.
Speak Up! includes designated chapters on both mediated public speaking and civic engagement, with additional examples from both topics woven throughout the text.
Illustrations and photos bring concepts to life. Custom drawn, pedagogically-powerful illustrations make public speaking concepts memorable, while newly added photos depict real people in real speech situations. In Speak Up!, written explanations and accompanying visuals reinforce one another, working together to clarify key ideas, offer inspiration, and help students internalize what they need to do to create a successful speech.
End-of-chapter critical thinking questions and activities prompt metacognition and analysis, encouraging students to carefully consider important concepts and apply their learning to their own assignments, experiences, and interests. Interactive versions of key critical thinking questions are available on Achieve.
Traditionally organized and with broad coverage of course topics, yet briefer than traditional texts. Speak Up! gives practical yet concise guidance for every step in the speechmaking process—from invention and organization to practice and delivery—and consistently focuses on helping students adapt their messages to particular audiences in our digital age.
Available for less than traditional speech texts. Speak Up!’s manageable, engaging chapters, video content, and compelling visuals are paired with an affordable price for students.
