What is Oral Interpretation?

In Oral Interpretation, students study the oral reading or performance of a literary text as a communication art. Students enrolled in Oral Interpretation I, II, III will select, research, analyze, adapt, interpret, and perform literary texts. Students focus on intellectual, emotional, sensory, and aesthetic levels of texts to attempt to capture the entirety of the author's work. Individual or group performances of literature will be presented and evaluated. (TEKS) Enrollment in this course requires the student to compete in tournaments to improve their critical thinking and public speaking skills.

What will we do during class?

Students are expected to perform their pieces in front of class for a grade. Students are required to evaluate their peer's performance to provide constructive criticism. Additional quizzes will be announced. Students will also be required to attend practice once a week (before / after school). All assignments are posted on the PARENT CONNECTION. Oral Interpretation is a co-curricular course, therefore students will be required to compete in tournaments throughout the school year.

Oral Interpretation I - one tournament each semester

Oral Interpretation II & III - five tournaments for the year

Class assignments do not have due dates, however students will not be allowed to participate in tournaments unless they fulfill the following requirements.
