Read Chapter 3 for an in-depth discussion of nonverbal communication and its functions. Pay close attention to the definition of nonverbal communication. Understanding the basic functions and types of nonverbal communication in our lives is a critical component of the many forms of human communication. The authors reinforce the notion that our actions (nonverbal communication) often speak truer or louder than our articulated verbal communication. After reading the chapter, complete the discussion questions and write definitions for the key terms listed at the end of the chapter. These assignments will help prepare you for the final exam.
