Cognella Active Learning
is available with this title.
The book begins with explanations of how communication relates to culture and power, how to distinguish between representative and constitutive communication, and how to build a message for an audience with an emphasis on social advocacy. Later chapters explore the responsibilities of speakers and listeners, alliance-building, the application of communication theory in the study of identity and perception, the relationship between language and culture, nonverbal communication, and more. The text closes with a discussion of communication as a means of social action, encouraging readers to use communication as a foundation for the advancement of issues that matter most to them.

“Students of today’s sometimes-divisive culture will appreciate learning through the lens of culture and critical thinking. They might not realize it at first, but as their skills grow, students will expand their minds as well as their ability to communicate with civility and humility.”
