Textbooks

 

The courses I teach are text-centered courses, which means that every part of the course will necessitate the use of the text. I only require books that we will use extensively.

Required Texts:

SPCH 1311: Introduction to Speech Communication – NEW for Fall 2018

Required Text: Steven McCornack and Joseph Ortiz, Choices and Connections: An Introduction to Communication, 2nd edition, ISBN 9781319115173

All Courses

All of my courses include a research component, so students should have a handbook showing how to use MLA documentation. I recommend Diana Hacker and Barbara Fister, Research and Documentation in the Digital Age with 2016 MLA Update, 6th edition, ISBN 9781319083502.
