Book Description: Choices & Connections shows students that communication is an opportunity to connect their words and actions to their choice of who they want to be and what kind of community they want to live in. Every element in the text is designed to engage students in the study of communication and help them become resilient, confident, and culturally conscious communicators. Choices & Connections helps students integrate and apply the most current scholarly research through scenario activities, real-life situations, and pop-culture examples designed to recursively develop communication skills best learned through practice, in context. The third edition has been extensively revised to ensure that all students' perspectives are represented. The coverage of gender communication has been overhauled, with a reimagined Chapter 3 on "Understanding Gender and Culture." The mediated communication chapter has also been heavily revised with the latest research.
