The book is designed exclusively for professional educators to use both in and out of the classroom. The author takes a skills-based humanistic and sometimes humorous approach to the psychology and strategies that must be in place before a person can develop as a speaker. Educators can improve their confidence by learning how to be aware of what is happening during a speech, and gradually accentuating their essential speaking skills. Included are hands-on strategies for taking control of the process and its outcome, as well as using the Internet for creating speeches.
Every educator's job will provide opportunities for public speaking; this book provides the instructional support that everyone needs. When a speaking event arises, educators can refer quickly to this book for help in making decisions about what to say and how to say it.
