Reviews - What do customers think about The Complete Book of Speech Communication: A Workbook of Ideas and Activities for Students of Speech and Theatre?

Not that helpful  Mar 13, 2007
I was a little disappointed in this book overall. I thought it would have great activity ideas for my speech class, and they were just "average" or "so-so" ideas--nothing that workable or useful.
 
Wonderful!!  Oct 26, 2005
This book is absolutely great. It's creative, easy to read, and even easier to employ in the classroom! It can be used with multiple grade levels- middle school, high school, and beyond. I found it inspiring and would recommend it anyone associated with the public speaking / oral comm. training field.
 
Good even for the ESL classroom.  Oct 25, 2005
I got this book to use in my ESL speech classes. With a few tweeks, I was able to apply the exercises in the book to Japanese students. Great new approach for the students.
 
Very Useful Tool.  Sep 17, 2005
Many of the things that a teacher is taught in school about what one should teach and how one should teach really aren't that useful once a teacher actually starts teaching. Not only that, but many beginning teachers struggling with teaching the things they want to teach in a way that excites students and causes them to want to learn. Speech classes at the secondary level are no different than classes anywhere else and public speaking/speech teachers struggle just as much as any othe teacher with how to make lesson practical and applicable in the classroom.

THE COMPLETE BOOK OF SPEECH COMMUNICATION is a great tool for any speech teacher looking for ideas to use in the classroom. As a beginning teacher, I have found it incredibly valuable. I have found it especially useful in trying to create lesson plans and to find fun ideas for fillers to use at the end of a class. The book is full of ideas and covers many of the areas of public speaking from informative speeches, impromptu speeches, oral interpretation, persuasive speeches, reader's theatre, just to name a few. It's a wonderful resource.
 
Excellent teaching tool!  Aug 20, 2005
This book was all I needed to create a fun public speaking course curriculum for middle school students. The layout was clear and easy to read. There were many interesting and fun activities/lessons which I could incorporate into the lesson. There were a lot of fun and creative ideas that made the students WANT to speak in front of a group! Great supplement for the classroom!
