Overview

A practical approach that helps students learn how to work together in groups successfully
REVEL™ for Working in Groups provides students with practical strategies, built on theory and research, for communicating and working successfully in groups. Utilizing the concept of balance as a unifying metaphor, authors Isa Engleberg and Dianna Wynn help students acquire the tools to apply group communication theories, methods, and skills effectively — helping them become more valuable and ethical group members. REVEL for the Seventh Edition offers coverage of fresh topics as well as a new closing chapter on group presentations that better helps students master this key skill.

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.
