Achieving Communication Competence: Growing in Knowledge, Skill, & Confidence presents students with reasons and motivations for communication competency and effectiveness in various contexts and circumstances. Whether foundational communication theory, interpersonal skills, professional and group communication or making professional presentations, your students are targeted with relevant, appropriate and meaningful content, and contexts. Don’t make your students endure a text with examples from fraternity parties, school mascots, dorm room hyjinx and team athletics controversies. Instead, provide them with a text that targets the unique qualities of all students.
