The craft of public speaking is best learned by doing, rendering many speech texts either too theoretical or too bland for effective use in the typical classroom. This quality book provides students with enough theory and information to learn basic speech techniques, while emphasizing practical exercises and activities. Oberg has taught speech and coached forensics at the junior high, high school, and university levels. He brings his comprehensive experience and extensive research to this book, creating eight units that each support specific learning objectives with a number of different activities and assignments. Chapters include styles of delivery, topic selection and research, different modes and purposes of speaking, oral interpretation, and more.
