Brief Overview (Summary) of the Course:
Students to the art of oral interpretation. Skills such as reading, vocabulary, and pronunciation are interwoven with those of imagination and empathy. We will incorporate Character Development, Interpretation, Cold Reading, Duet Acting, and Reader’s Theater. Students will be given monologues and scenes on a weekly basis to cold read, analyze, practice, receive feedback and perform.
Life skills: Students will learn to express themselves through a variety of ways: Physically, emotionally, verbally (including a variety of vocal styles). Students will have the potential of breaking through emotional and mental barriers to their own success.
Vocabulary: Scripts that are assigned to students will include challenging and advanced vocabulary which much be pronounced and interpreted correctly in order to bring out the meaning of the scene being performed.
Materials will come from a variety of sources, depending on the students’ individual reading and speaking levels as well as their individual personalities. Each lesson will use a different style of acting. Some of the assigned scripts will be stand-alone monologues or duets, some will come from published plays and/or books (prose-poetry).
