Speech Studies


Some persons have strange ideas about what the speech teacher does. They may think of him as a teacher of elocution, whose main concern is voice lessons, breathing drills, and graceful posture. Some may refer to him as a coach- like an athletic coach who trains students to win contests. On occasion a hypercritical person may associate with him the word sophist, believing that a speech teacher deals in tricks of persuasion, in memory training, and in human relations. But none of these impressions gives a fair picture of the modern speech teacher or of the field speech education. This textbook deals with history, methods and exercises.
