Speech and Voice Science / Edition 1

This second edition of Speech and Voice Science contains changes to help engage students in the learning process. The most significant changes include a reorganization of the introductory chapters, the inclusion of ample student study material, and classroom group activities. Each chapter now contains section study questions in addition to the end-of-chapter review questions, which have themselves been expanded. The section study questions are designed to help focus students to the key concepts as they read, and to assess their learning. You will also find website recommendations and Instructor- Facilitated Classroom Learning Activities at the end of each chapter. New material such as the chapter on Advice for Students on Effective Study Techniques, has also been added. The second edition has been revised and updated to be a better resource for students and instructors alike.
