  3. 3. Vocal Work - Expression<br />Expression or “inflection” is the emphasis that gives meaning to your words<br />Expression is affected by<br />pitch<br />volume<br />tempo<br />phrasing<br />quality<br />
  4. 4. Vocal Work - Expression<br />Let’s see how our inflection can affect the meaning in this sample sentence.<br />Ex: I can’t tell you not to go.<br />
  5. 5. Vocal Work - Expression<br />I can’t tell you not to go.<br />I can’t tell you not to go.<br />I can’t tell you not to go.<br />I can’t tell you not to go.<br />I can’t tell you not to go.<br />I can’t tell you not to go.<br />
  6. 6. Vocal Work - Expression<br />With a partner, take turns saying the following sentences on the handout aloud, experimenting with your inflection.<br />
  7. 7. Practice Presentations – 20 min<br />In groups of 3 or 4, each student will take a turn standing up and giving a short “practice” presentation on the topic on the handout.<br />You have 2 or 3 minutes right now to think about what you are going to say and/or make a few notes.<br />
  8. 8. Practice Presentations – 20 min<br />Before you begin, take a few deep belly breaths and focus on speaking from speaking from there<br />After each person has finished, the group should give 1 star (something done well) and 1 wish (something to improve on)<br />See the back of the handout for suggestions on what kind of feedback to give.<br />
  9. 9. Today’s Presentations<br />
  10. 10. BREAK<br />
  11. 11. Cause and Effect Homework<br />Many of you did not really understand the instructions <br />Part 1: Write a topic sentence that indicates wither causes or effects will be discussed<br />Part 2: Brainstorm supporting points for one of the topic sentences<br />
  12. 12. Topic Sentences should[for a single paragraph]<br />be the first sentence in the paragraph<br />state one main idea or opinion that could be supported with specific evidence<br />have two main parts<br />the limited topic (“narrowed” or “more specific” topic)<br />the writer’s attitude about the topic (general opinion or impression)<br />Ex: Topic: “Your car”<br />Topic Sentence: My Ford Escort is the worst car I’ve ever owned.<br /> limited topic writer’s attitude<br />
  13. 13. Topic Sentences should not<br />be too narrow<br />Ex: My car is a Ford Escort.<br />
  14. 14. Example, Activity 8, p. 64<br />I do push-ups and sit-ups each morning.<br />Exercising every morning has positive effects on my health. <br />
  15. 15. Student Examples<br />These are all too narrow (“dead-end”)<br />Employers hire new immigrants as they can pay them the minimum wage. (This is just one cause – Try: “Employers hire new immigrants because they can take advantage of them.” Then you can list several reasons.)<br />The biggest effect(only one effect) of cheating is it can damage the confidence between people. (Try: “Cheating can damage a relationship in several ways.”)<br />The result(only one effect)of cheating is losing self confidence. (What kind of cheating? Who loses self confidence? Try: “Cheating at school can lead to negative consequences for the cheater.”)<br />
  16. 16. Topic Sentences should not<br />be too broad<br />Ex: Many people have problems with their cars.<br />
  17. 17. Example, Activity 9, p. 64<br />Professional football is a dangerous sport.<br />Professional sports are violent.<br />
  18. 18. Student Examples<br />These are all too broad (general)<br />Some people (Canadians? Vancouverites? Who?)always have lots of reasons for racial discrimination (In what situation? The workplace? School? Sports?).<br />In my life I have gone through some turning points which made me who I am today. (This would be good for an essay; for a paragraph, ust pick one turning point, and name it.)<br />Since I have made a major decision (What is it?), I have noticed several negative effects on my life.<br />
  19. 19.
