COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Advanced study of the acoustics, neurology, and physiology relating to production and perception of spoken language. Provides a foundation for understanding speech.

MISSION:

The mission of the Speech Science II course is to empower participants with the communication tools necessary to create a learning/working/recreational/communication environment that encourages a sense of belonging, independence, generosity, and mastery for individuals with communication disorders and their communication partners.

·         Belonging is an integral part of society. Communication disorders can result in a sense of non-participation. Participants will examine the physiologic, neurologic, and acoustic aspects of human communication and apply strategies that foster communication environments that encourage belonging.

·         Independence is a critical component for interacting successfully in society. The ability to communicate is one of the components of independence. Participants will examine the physiologic, neurologic, and acoustic aspects of human communication and apply strategies that foster independence for individuals with communication disorders and their communication partners.

·         Generosity may be demonstrated through empathy, caring, concern, service, etc. Participants will examine the physiologic, neurologic, and acoustic aspects of human communication and apply strategies that create positive communication climates between individuals with communication disorders and their communication partners.

·         Mastery is one of the keys for demonstrating preparedness, responsibility, competence, etc. Participants will examine the physiologic, neurologic and acoustic aspects of human communication and develop a  mastery of these concepts in preparation to providing professional services to individuals with communication disorders and their communication partners.

TEXT:           

Speech Science: An Integrated Approach to Theory and Clinical Practice (with CD-ROM), 2/E, Ferrand, CT, Allyn & Bacon, 2007.

The text is an excellent introductory resource regarding speech science. This text will be used extensively throughout this course.  Students are expected to read assignments in advance.

 

METHODS:

This course will consist of small group learning, large group learning, individual learning, individual and group presentations, and lecture. Students are expected to read assigned materials prior to each class period. Often, class will consist of with small group discussions of case studies, progressing to large group discussions of case studies and ending with lecture.

 

GRADING:

Projects are equivalent 25% and tests 75% of the final grade.

 

93-100 = A

90-92 = A-

87-89 = B+

83-86 = B

80-82 = B-

77-79 = C+

73-76 = C

70-72 = C-

60-69 = D

< 60 = F

Exams: There will be two exams, objective in nature, one of which will be the final.
Projects: There are several projects due throughout the semester as indicated below (project assignments).

ATTENDANCE:

 

Punctual and regular attendance as well as classroom participation is expected for all class meetings.  Punctual and regular attendance is a reflection of your commitment to the course and the profession.  Students who display a pattern of poor attendance, participation and/or commitment including but not limited to habitual tardiness, excessive absences, late work, etc., should be aware that this will have an impact upon the final course grade.  Scheduling of medical appointments, meetings, and other events etc., during the scheduled class time does not constitute an excused absence. Schedule travel arrangements AFTER the final.  The student is responsible to make-up missed material when absent from class. The student is responsible to make-up missed material when absent from class.  I suggest that a student review notes from other students when absent from class.

 

ACCOMMODATIONS: 

 

Students with identified special needs should meet with the course instructor within the first week of class to coordinate and finalize arrangements for appropriate accommodations.

 

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY/HONOR CODE: 

 

Policies related to issues of academic integrity/academic dishonesty as outlined in the college’s Student Handbook will be observed.

 

As a community of scholars, the students and faculty at Augustana College commit to the highest standards of excellence by mutually embracing an Honor Code.  The Honor Code requires that examinations and selected assignments contain the following pledge statement to which students are expected to sign:

On my honor, I pledge that I have upheld the Honor Code, and that the work I have done on this assignment has been honest, and that the work of others in this class has, to the best of my knowledge, been honest as well.

Faculty members are responsible for investigating all instances involving any student who does not sign the Honor Pledge or who bring forward an academic integrity concern.  The complete Honor Code can be found at www.augie.edu/admin/acadaff/.

 

"Likely consequences for violating the Honor Code may result in a minimum grade of zero or failure for the assignment in question, or a failing grade on the exam or the entire course.  Severity of penalties may depend on whether the violation is a student's first incident of academic dishonesty."

 

INDIVIDUAL STUDY:

 

·         Normally, there are no make-up tests or make-up assignments to raise grades. Students are encouraged to study well in advance for exams. Students perform much better on exams when students review material periodically rather than a day or two before the exam.  When assignments are late, the grade will be reduced by 10 points each day.

·         It is recommended that students re-write class notes each day. This helps retain information and prepares one for the exams.

·         Please read the text prior to class discussion. Do not delay in reading the assigned material well in advance of the exam. Students should review course material periodically throughout the semester rather than several days before an exam.  Assignments and exam dates are posted on the calendar so students can prepare in advance for exams and class discussion.

·         The Speech Perception Web page (http://www.augie.edu/perry/ar/speech.htm) and Speech Production Web page has been developed as a resource and tool for this course.  Please access and utilize these resources.

 

COMPUTER COMPETENCIES:

 

·         access Ole, read mail, compose mail, forward mail, reply, delete mail, spell check mail, justify, create mailing lists, etc.

·         access the Web, search, add bookmarks, view book marks, utilize the Augustana College Web online services and the Virtual Tour of the Ear, etc.

·         use PowerPoint

·         post assignment to Moodle

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

 

·         The Americans with Disabilities Act states: "Reasonable accommodation will be provided for all persons with disabilities in order to ensure equal participation within the program. If a student has a disability that will likely require some accommodation by the instructor, the student must contact the instructor and document the disability through the Disability Resource Center, preferably during the first week of the course. Any request for special consideration relating to attendance, pedagogy, taking of examinations, etc., must be discussed with and approved by the instructor. In cooperation with the Disability Resource Center, course materials can be provided in alternative format, large print, audio, diskette, or Braille."
