i think it sounds great when u can control ur voice. Changing voice volumes makes the listeners interested.It would be awesome if we could have some actions too. Have alot of fun. ;P
I think that when you pause for the part i thank its sounds real. making your voice go up and down sounds very interesting. The part that i was surprised with is when we can make our voice at the first time if having this subject. I never had this subject in school before.
For me, reader's theater is a great opportunity to practice your reading. Why? You get to use your voice in a more realistic way, of course! I mean, in readers' theater you get to pretend that you were there in that particular scene. Sure, you an do that in normal reading but in readers' theater you can get the feel more and it's definitely more fun! One more thing is that, now, I try to use phrasing more in my reading. Before, I used to read the whole sentence quickly and I've realized in this unit that phrasing is important for the dramatic effect. A really good example is in the video Mr. Mitch showed us. It was about the man who was looking for his wife. The line where he says,"You complete me", he said it with a dramatic pause. If you just said, "You complete me" quickly, the other person might think something like," Oh, sure, whatever", because it sounds like you really don't mean it that much. But, if you said it like," You............... complete me" there's a more likely chance that that line right there is going to actually STICK in the other person's head. So, what surprised me, was as mentioned, the dramatic pausing and the effect they make on our reading.
For me, playing with my voice is a awesome thing for me to do. It makes me wrok in some strategies in a role play like in readers theater we were learning right now. I also like controlling the voice of mines also because it makes me feel braver to raise my voice when I'm angry. And the other thing I like is having fun with it and enjoying in the same time as learning. I love reader's theater!!!
I really think that reader's theater is one of the best subject.I love to express my feeling with the voice the character.I think that i have improve in my dramatic voice and i am thankful to get the opportunity to study with my voice.
Honestly i want to say thank you to you mr.mitch!!!
When we started readers theater I know how to change my voice in different tones and I also know how to phrase. What surprised me was that it wasn't that hard to change your voice, you just need to try in different tones to match the speech in the script.
I changed my voice by making my voice up and down. It makes me feel that it is not boring. By doing Reader's Theater I think it makes me improve my accent in reading.
When I changed my voice, I was quite surprised because I had never changed my voice in different tones like this. I had mostly read and spoke stuff in the same tone so it was pretty different when I did Readers' Theater. The pausing made things dramatic so it was pretty obvious that if you compared my Readers' Theater voice with my other voice, the Readers' Theater one would be better.
I think changimg my sound makes my sound more exciting. I change my voice when in the script it sounds like we need to change our voice higher or lower. I think reader's theater is about changing our voice higher or lower. It didn't surprise me when i changed my voice. I think chaning my voice higher and lower is to not make the audience get bored.
For my readers theater, i try to make my voice change. I change to the expresions of the one who speaking. There were also emotional and pausing.I felt good because it also help me improve when I read. That's because when i read the book now, i improve. Like i read the character expresions in the book i do the sound like she or he. When i speak now, i have more expresion.
In reader's theater, we get to act with our voice. We need to imagine that we're in the same situation as the character in the script. It's not only imagination, it's also changing your voice with expression. It's not hard. You just need to follow the phrasing.
Nowadays, when I am reading a script, i am used to pausing. I don't have to remind myself to pause for 1 or 2 secs. I belive that pausing shows the emotions that you are in, in that moment and it also it dosent make the speech boring for the people watching.I have a lot of fun changing my voice at home and at school with my partner but i am a bit shy and nervous reading in front of the class. But i hope after a few weeks, i will be confident in doing that.
I used my voice in a voice that has expression, pausing, and phrasing to make it sound like you really want the person who is listening to you to know how you feel. The surprise I found was it sounded like I was the character.
when we change our voice it kind of surprised that when we playing with our voice it is very fun . Now i change voice for every character i read. Not like in before day that i read with out expression and don't look at the phrasing or other thing. It just a monotone sound. when my friends listen to me said with different sound. they said it not boring .
To me, readers' theater is about changing your voice like how the character would be saying
it. Reader's theater helps me more with my reading skills, by pausing when I had to. I was
surprised when I had to change my voice in to an angry voice[like the plant eater would say
it]..Readers' theater is the subject that I never did before. This subject is very fun to me
[especially the dinosaur land script].
Well, to me, Reader's Theater is all about "fun" and emotion. In this unit, it kinda lets out my fears of embaressment and let all of my emotions out. It's kind-of like when I dance ballet. If you have ever seen a ballet show, you can see that when the ballerina dances, it's not just beautiful and graceful just because she points her foot and turns out- no. Not that. It's about like, 85% about the way you look to, how you look. If it's happy, then you act all excited with your movements and stuff. Get what I mean? (It's okay if you don't really get the point because most of you don't dance ballet anyway :D )
But, it's just like ballet. You read the script, understand what the setting might be like, how the character might be like, and perform. Let's your feelings flow out. I don't have to be afraid. I just let my feelings out, like I think it should be.
When I read, I don't usually pause. But in this new and exciting unit, you use many dramatic pauses. In Martin Luther King's speech, he had a lot of feelings and pauses in there. When you pause, the audience will feel eager of what you'll say, or maybe have some sad, dramatic emotion. Martin Luther King had a lot of pauses, so I think his speech is very touching.
All in all, I think this unit is super fun, and I hope that I'll improve a lot with my reading. Not just read with a dull, dark, voice. :)
I try to use my voice in different way. When i try to use my voice with expression it sounds good. i learn that it is not just reading. But we need to have phrasing and reading it with expression. I know a new way of reading.
i tried using my voice in every way i knew. it was pretty cool i tried giving a speech like Martin luther king with a lot of pauses it sounded so much better with emotions and pauses.
