What could be better than reading a wonderful book?  Reading it aloud! In Embodying the Book, students will cultivate their capacity to bring literature fully to life through the medium of voice.  In a safe and supportive environment, students will approach the human voice as an instrument of expression, exploring such topics as effective sound production, enunciation, pacing, tone, emphasis, and rhythm.  Then they will apply their new learning to a range of narrative, dramatic, and poetic texts, developing the nuanced intellectual and emotional understandings necessary to forging their own meaningful interpretations.  Our ultimate goal is to deepen our connections to literature, language, and ourselves.
