Oral Interpretation in the Secondary School, MSA Curriculum Guide 7.
Herman, Deldee M., Ed.; Ratliffe, Sharon A., Ed.
This volume of the Michigan Speech Association curriculum guide presents a seven-unit course in oral interpretation as the technique of communicating the contents of a printed page with such skill as to "create in the listeners the illusion that an experience is being enacted in their imaginations." Each unit is outlined in terms of objectives, content, learning experiences, and bibliography. The first four units present the fundamentals of effective oral interpretation--selection and preparation of material, vocal and nonverbal techniques, and preparation for presentation before an audience. The last three units present in-depth discussions of prose (including drama), poetry, and group reading. Each unit includes sample exercises and suggestions for assignments. (RN)
