Opilar
Erik Palmer's book does a good job of highlighting an increasingly neglected skill, public speaking. The shame is, most teachers are so preoccupied with teaching reading and writing that speaking has been all but squeezed out. Yet we'd all agree that modern society values effective speaking very much -- right or not, maybe even more than effective writing. Consider, for instance, the people who rise to the top in such areas as business and politics. I think public speaking also gets the squeeze in many classrooms due to high-stakes testing. What little time might have remained for it is now given over to practice tests, drills, and desk handouts, all in the name of higher scores, (no) thanks to the intense scrutiny these scores get every year.

The book is straightforward and of greatest value to teachers who have done little with public speaking in the past. If you're a teacher who HAS taught public speaking, you probably won't find a lot of new ideas here. What you will find, however, are a few activities, suggested rubrics, and all manner of advice, some better than others. I disagree, for instance with Palmer's suggestion that teachers call on sporting volunteers to wing it in front of the class so that the teacher can follow with exaggerations of the common mistakes just witnessed ("um," "uh," rocking, pulling of shirt ends, etc.). While he's careful to say you must choose the right student and have the proper classroom dynamic, I think even "good sports" who play along might take it home and privately mull over it. Are you willing to take that chance? Overall, however, all the basics are here. Nothing fancy. Just speaking -- or as Palmer likes to put it, just "PVLEGS." That's Poise, Voice, Life, Eye Contact, Gestures, and Speed.

I've been teaching speech, drama, and English in various forms since 1993 and this is the book I've been waiting for. Just the right amount of classroom and examples. Easy to follow discussion and activities at the ends of the chapters. This one is worth the money. If you are a beginning teacher or a vet, buy this book!

This book is very different from most "how to" education books. It actually gives you information and strategies to implement in your classroom. While most education books give thousands of scenarios and advice, this one gives "the goods". Not preachy, or opinionated, just good solid information that can be put to use on day one. Skip your next "public speaking" conference and buy this book. You'll thank me!

This book reads quickly. It is very well laid out and full of useful information for those wishing to develop more and better speaking skills in students. I showed the book to my school superintendant, who immediately saw a way to provide a k-12 program for improving speaking skills, which we'll start to organize for this fall. He and I especially liked the rubrics Mr. Palmer provides
since they can be adapted for any level and any curriculum area.

I teach speech and debate at a HS in WA state. Found this book through a recommendation by writing guru Kelly Gallagher. After combing through a lot of curriculum for my class, this book really did it for me. Palmer taught for 20 years and offers great instructional strategies and insightful thinking about public speaking. He breaks it down into a very digestible way of approaching speech -- how to build one and how to present one. His writing is crisp and clear. Highly recommended.

Having attended a conference with Erick Palmer featured as a Keynote Speaker, I simply had to have this book but alas none were available for sale at the conference :( . In conjunction with his website, this is a great resource for teachers everywhere.

It was what I expected.
I teach high school sophomore and junior English and this book has been incredibly valuable in helping me to incorporate debate into my argumentative writing unit!
