About

Overview

MindTap™ Speech for Sprague/Stuart/Bodary's The Speaker's Handbook, 11th Edition is the digital learning solution that helps instructors engage and transform today's students into critical thinkers. Through paths of dynamic assignments and applications that you can personalize, real-time course analytics, and an accessible reader, MindTap helps you turn cookie cutter into cutting edge, apathy into engagement, and memorizers into higher-level thinkers. MindTap Speech provides everything students need to prepare, practice, and present. Activities, developed specifically for this discipline, guide students through the process of analyzing sample speeches, creating topics, building outlines, and practicing and presenting their speech. In addition, you can search for, and incorporate, additional activities based on student speeches and professional (or famous) speeches in the Speech Video Library MindApp.
