Description:

Teaches students to communicate civilly and ethicallyUncivil acts and messages too often color our experience with others. Communication in a Civil Society, 1/e, offers an alternative way to teach and learn about communication. Every chapter focuses on communication based on respect, restraint, and ethical choices.MyCommunicationLab is an integral part of the Lane/Abigail/Gooch program that will help students communicate better. With MediaShare, students can post and share videos of their presentations. Also, interactive videos provide students with the opportunity to evaluate speeches. Online self-assessments and pre- and post-tests help students assess their comfort level with course concepts and their knowledge of the material.
