The Added Dimension of Voice: Creating Interpersonal Involvement in the SLA Classroom.
Forrest, Tracey
A discussion of the use of voice as an effective tool in second language instruction examines the role of teachers as readers, the process of selecting and interpreting texts, preparation of reading passages, and reading aloud in class. The dimension of voice added to other aspects of language emphasizes the communicative purpose of the language, helps students exploit their full knowledge of the language, enhances the comprehensibility of the text, encourages students to develop active listening skills and increase their paralinguistic repertoires, motivates students to investigate deeper meanings in the text, and inspires skill development in reading and writing. Specific techniques and considerations in preparing to read aloud to students are outlined. (MSE)
