Enlivening Text for Speaking Aloud in the Middle School

Tessa Westlake
In this workshop we will be working with speech, drama and creative writing exercises to develop voice, perceptive and expressive skills.  We will be playfully exploring some Middle School repertoire and bringing it to life.  The choice of classic and modern texts range from tongue twisters to literature – verse, story, dialogue – and will include something seasonal.  Please wear comfortable clothes for moving in, and shoes such as trainers.
