2) Read from page 15 (~20 – 30 minutes)


3) Voice Actors Wanted

Choose a passage from what we read today. Find a section of the book with dialogue and interior monologue or description. Read with feeling several times—to yourself and to a partner. Take turns reading with your partner until both of you can read without mistakes.

Your goal is to increase your fluency by—

  • Reading at an appropriate pace and volume.
  • Pronouncing words correctly.
  • Pausing at punctuation.
  • Modulating, or changing, your voice to show emotion or to emphasize specific parts.
