Revel™ Public Speaking: Finding Your Voice helps students develop into effective speakers while emphasizing the ethical significance of public speaking and its importance in our increasingly diverse society. Authors Kathleen J. Turner, Randall Osborn, Michael Osborn, and Suzanne Osborn guide students to become better, more thoughtful consumers as well as producers of messages — all the more important in an age when we are daily bombarded with “fake news” and other forms of deceptive communication. The 11th Edition includes fully updated examples as well as revised learning outcomes that help keep students on track in the course.
Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
