"Jaffe achieves its goal of teaching public speaking within a context of cultural diversity. The Jaffe text could also be used if little emphasis were placed on diversity. However, in my classes, thanks to Jaffe, I am able to use Jaffe's emphasis on diversity to good advantage. I have a large mix of students in my community college classes. Jaffe's emphasis allows for fascinating discussions that explore the wonderful mix of cultures that make up the United States and promotes understanding of personal differences. This text is also more research-oriented and philosophical than most speech texts, providing a broader scope of learning and critical thinking."
