The Deep Double Game: Oral Interpretation To Enhance Reading Comprehension.
Athanases, Steven Z.; Barton, Jim
Supported by a rationale for activities in the language arts/English curriculum, this paper demonstrates methods of introducing students to current approaches to oral interpretation of literature. The paper argues that through planning, rehearsing, and reflecting on oral interpretations of literature, readers become increasingly aware of characters' emotions and learn to embody these emotions in performance. The paper also argues that such practice helps students in subsequent silent readings to interpret the affective dimensions of texts, and therefore to comprehend literary works. (Sixteen references and an appendix of 10 practical tips in using oral interpretation are attached.) (RS)
