Abstract

This presentation will focus on three potential basic communication course readings: Don Fabun's _Communications: The Transfer of Meaning_, and Chapters Three and Four from Wendell Johnson's _Your Most Enchanted Listener_. It will share insights from using these readings in an introductory communication studies class, weigh the merits of more and less 'familiar' ways of understanding communication, and suggest tactics for teaching General Semantics ideas.
