Dramatic Monologue: A person speaks to a silent audience, revealing an aspect of his or her character, expressing a viewpoint. Comments: Often, sections of literary works seem to portray intense or captivating interaction, drama, between characters. While reading, visualize how the characters move in terms of their gestures and in relation to each other. See them touching each other or backing away. Hear the tones in their voices and the inflections, volume, and emphasis they use when they speak to each other. Imaginatively experience the feelings and meanings they are communicating to each other. We do not expect that students will be above-average performers, and we do not feel they should be judged on “acting” as a major criterion in any dramatization. Students should be expected to capture the characters they portray and exhibit the truth of whatever the activity calls for. These types of activities are not intended to be polished Hollywood performances, nor the quality one would even see on a High School stage. That takes a class in drama or a group of talented performers who have a great deal of time to prepare. Our acting activities are designed only to reveal character or plot to the audience.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
