Poem for two voices
Using your list (attached) of characteristics for listeners & speakers, write a poem for two voices. One ‘voice’ is Good Listeners and the other ‘voice’ is Good
Speakers. On your finished product I will be looking for parts where the each voice speaks independently (minimum of 5 each) and parts where the voices speak
in unison (minimum of 3). Have fun and be creative with this. Spiffy it up with clip art and/or borders. This could be something you could use with your future
classrooms as a Reader’s Theater activity to introduce how students should present and how they should listen to presenters. This activity will be graded on
content, appearance and format (parts for each reader separately and parts that are read together).
