Description

A Speaker's Resource: Listener-Centered Public Speaking embodies an innovative, classroom-proven technique for teaching public speaking that sets it apart from other texts and handbooks. The listener-centered approach— using a framework known as listenability—relies on two major principles: conversation and considerateness. Considerate speakers prepare and deliver their presentation from a listener-centered mindset and the heavy reliance on the conversational approach allows them to use their own voices as they do so. Using a student-friendly tone, lively examples, and practical advice, the handbook helps students develop successful speeches from the first week of class.
