Overview

Crannell's text offers students a chance to both learn and do. First, students read to discover how their vocal apparatus works and find ways to recognize a variety of speech patterns. Then, as they practice with the numerous and varied exercises provided in the text, they develop the skills needed for personal and professional success.
