The book begins with several chapters offering general advice for preaching, teaching and public speaking. These initial chapters cover topics such as researching efficiently, making an outline, improving conversation skills and communicating through letters. Between the initial chapters and the actual lessons is a counsel form, which allows the teacher to note when the student has completed a lesson and its exercises. The counsel form also highlights which lessons apply to public readings, demonstrations or discourses.

Basic lessons covered by the workbook include correct pronunciation, fluent delivery, suitable volume, enthusiasm and visual contact. Intermediate lessons in the book include effective introduction of scriptures, correct choice of words, respect shown to others, proper use of repetition and development of a theme. Advanced lessons at the end of the book include forming an interest-arousing introduction, concluding effectively, using questions effectively, displaying reason and strengthening an audience.
