A Survey of Voice/Speech Improvement Teaching in U. S. Colleges and Universities.
Morgan, Willie B.
The results of a survey of college speech departments, conducted to gain information on the current status of voice/speech improvement training, department course offerings, and general approaches used by individual teachers are contained in this report. The report begins with a description of the survey and information on the respondents. The major portion of the report contains the survey results, divided as follows: (1) coursework offered by departments; (2) instructors' status, background, and approaches to teaching; (3) breathing concepts in voice and speech improvement; (4) phonation and resonance in voice improvement; (5) dialects and standardization of speech; and (6) common voice/speech problems. A brief section of concluding observations on the results is followed by a bibliography, most of which contains textbook titles cited in response to a question on the survey. (HTH)
