Project 1: Read a Story
Interpretive Reading

Tonight I delivered my first speech from an advanced manual. Silly me, I did not record it.

I hadn’t practiced as much as I would have liked. Even so, it went pretty well. I had viewed a YouTube video of Sandra Cisneros (the author) reading her own story. That got me in the frame of reading this as a fragile young girl. Personally, I liked it. Some of the comments indicated it was a bit soft and not quite as dynamic. ‘Tis true, but I think it interpreted well for the character.

I think some do not understand that as an interpretive reading, I have different goals than the other speeches have. I suspect I will never win a speech contest as long as it is a reading. That may have merit.
