FA18_THAR 247 Intro to Oral Communication

This course helps students improve their oral communication

and oral interpretation. It includes voice production

appropriate for public speaking and for literary interpretation

of prose, poetry, and drama. The course begins with how the

voice is produced and progresses with various specifics of

prose and poetry, scripted and improvisational speaking, and

the effective delivery of dramatic literature (reader’s theatre

and theatrical monologues). The course concentrates on

individual student presentations of both original and scripted

material.
