I prefer to invite a student to choose which "style" we use. I use these "styles" in several ways:
- Students may choose a "style" for how the class will read aloud a sentence or two from a story or conversation.
- We can add "styles" to TPR (Total Physical Response) to make those actions more interesting and fun.
- The "styles" can be used to coach students who are acting or role-playing to help them ham it up!
- We can refer to this list of adjectives as I ask questions of students, or when they are writing.
