Follow Laura, her roommates, T.A. Robert and a host of other characters as they navigate their way through public speaking. Read along as Aristotle gets a uniquely American update and the Sophists at last get their pedagogical say. Watch as YouTube and other web-based digital content gets leveraged for illustrative effect. And perhaps best of all, know that our dynamic platform is always ready to be customized to reflect your own needs as a teacher of this ancient (and harrowing) art. Owned and operated by professors, Flip Learning’s Public Speaking in the 21st Century promises to forever change the way you and your students experience textbooks.
