4 Week Unit
Voice and diction skills are essential not only to theatrical presentations, but are also applicable to public speaking exercises in any discipline. In this unit, students will have the opportunity to attain knowledge on the biology of voice, elements that affect the quality of voice and diction, and how to prepare the voice to perform with volume, emotion and diction. They will then be able to apply this knowledge to deliver a self-written monologue.
Includes: Slideshow with teacher notes, assignments and exercises, student journals with keys, project, and test with key.
