Far from your standard text on speech education, this delightfully illustrated book encourages lively participation in each activity and focuses on fun exercises for students of all ages. This whole year of creative assignments will aid preparation for any speaking, from formal, research-based presentations to simple retellings of personal experiences. Sample activities include rap, pantomime, charades, a game show, readers theatre, TV news, a mock trial, talk show improvisation, and dozens more, including a bonus section of extra activities. The ten chapters cover a wide gamut, from interpersonal and intrapersonal communication to impromptu speaking, storytelling, acting, and non-verbal communication. Each chapter contains terms to learn, objectives, assignment instructions, and topic ideas.
