Forensics: Drama (DI) & Humorous Interpretation (HI)
Teacher: Jackie Fowler
This class will focus on DI and HI that can be performed at competitions throughout Virginia through the NCFCA Christian Speech and Debate. This is not a requirement of the class, but I will be teaching the standards laid out in the National Forensics League, so if students wish to compete, they have this option. Performing at Forensic events is well received when colleges are looking at potential applicants. The class will be using plays, short stories and other published works. Students will perform a selection of one or more portions of a piece up to 10 minutes in length. With a spotlight on character development and depth, DI and HI focus on the student's ability to convey emotion through the use of a text. Competitors may portray one or multiple characters. No props or costumes are used. For competition, students can either choose to perform solo, or they may choose a partner and do duo events. For more information about events that are available, please go to NCFCA Christian Speech and Debate. The portions dealing with DI and HI would be under the speech portion. Class limit is 20.
