Ch. 8 9. Why is it necessary to use a variety of messages and communication channels in a  public relations program? Communicators should think in terms of the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste.  Television and film or videotape are the most effective methods of communication because they  engage an audience’s senses of sight and hearing. They also offer attractions of color and  movement. Radio, on the other hand, relies only on the sense of hearing. Print media, although  capable of communicating a large amount of information in great detail, rely only on sight. Individuals learn through all five senses, but psychologists estimate that 83 percent of learning is  accomplished through sight. Hearing accounts for 11 percent. Fifty percent of what individuals  retain consists of what they see and hear. For this reason, speakers often use visual aids. 10. Why is it important to write with clarity and simplicity? How can symbols, acronyms,  and slogans help?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
