Hicks, Vivian H.
This curriculum guide describes an advanced course for speech classes in the oral interpretation of literature. It is meant to follow the first course, which introduced the subject and gave some fundamentals and practice in oral reading. The student is expected to meet the following objectives in the course: (1) demonstrate ability in using his voice as an instrument through practice in reading literature with a variety of moods, emotions, and characters; (2) devise methods to cut stories, essays, and plays to fit prescribed time limits; (3) compile a bibliography of literature suitable for interpretative reading for a general audience, an audience of young adults, or an audience of children; (4) select, arrange, and organize materials for a one-man show; and (5) participate in a performance for a selected audience. The guide presents numerous teaching strategies and learning activities to help the students accomplish the goals of the course. A bibliography of student and teacher resources consisting of state-adopted textbooks, professional books and periodicals, audio tapes, and records is included. (No grade level is specified.)
