Chapter 1: Introduction to Human Communication
From Doug: "This illustration extends the concept that communication is not just common sense (it's a skill that students need to build) by showing a new example. It also extends the text by showing this principle in a mediated context. Students will be familiar with this channel (texting), and likely also with the scenario."

Chapter 10: Principles of Group Communication
From Kathy: "This illustration extends the text discussion of group development by presenting in real time a calendar of events a group might experience. The visuals help students actually "see" how time in a group is broken up into turning points in their work. This is accomplished in multiple visuals: the calendar days with activities, and the boldface wording that demarcates the turning points. This visually shows the two phases of Gersick's Two-Phase Model."
Chapter 13: Speech Content: Research, Supporting Materials, and Ethics:
From Doug: "This visual analogy of an Indian Jones-like train car going over the cliff
shows the dangers of internet research. Signs on the track provide visual,
concise statements of many of the problems with internet research.Instructors could use this image to teach about the downsides of Internet research."
