Audiobooks. We listened to several in class. Some great. Some good. Some not-so-good. Your assignment is detailed on Page 32 of your Workbook. There is recording and listening required in order to fill in the answers to the questions on Page 33 – but you will NOT have to play this back in class.
So in a nutshell…
Select a book you think your voice is suited for and something that you would LIKE to read. It can be Fiction or Non-Fiction. Do not select a children’s book for this assignment.
Read one chapter silently so that you understand what it is you are reading. Make notes of any characters if it is Fiction with dialog.
Then start your recorder and read 1 page. Then stop – play back what you recorded. Follow along in the book. Listen for errors. Use the self-evaluation skills you have been developing. You are simply getting some feedback at this point.
After this part of the exercise – start the recorder again and read at least 3 pages. More if you want.
At this point you can turn to page 33 and answer the questions.
