Oral Report: Karloff's Monster (p. 645)
Watch part of the 1931 movie Frankenstein and give an oral report comparing Karloff's interpretation with a more recent Frankenstein movie. The following Frankenstein resources will help you prepare your report.
After you have written your report, record yourself as you practice delivering it. Play it back and ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I sound as if I'm speaking, or as if I'm reading?
- Is the content of my speech interesting? Did I choose vivid words and effective examples that sound good when spoken aloud?
- Do I sound as if I'm interested in my topic?
- Did I speak too quickly? Too loudly? Too quietly? Did I enunciate?
- Did I vary my pace and tone, or did I speak in a monotone?
- Is my speech filled with "ums" and "likes"?
