Overview

Listening takes an experiential approach to listening instruction, providing extensive applications and cases within the context of a sound theoretical framework. The text encourages students to view listening as a process involving six interrelated components which are developed along the parallel dimensions of theory and skill building. Within the unifying theoretical framework of the HURIER model, students develop an understanding of the listening process and gain powerful listening skills. The fifth edition continues to explore the impact of culture, technology, and globalization, and raises timely ethical questions to promote students'
consideration of the responsibilities associated with listening in today's complex world. Self-assessment, activities, and case studies further distinguish this engaging text. Students will readily recognize the important role listening plays in helping them achieve their personal and professional goals while they become more engaged and informed citizens.
