The Intersection Tutorial: Public Speaking – Dramatic Reading, Prepare like a Professional Actor


This is the first communication tutorial that I will produce each month for my listeners.


As queer PoC who has worked as an:

Ivy League performance, public speaking, and rhetoric professor

and classical vocalist,


I have studied and taught phrasing and stress patterns.

To hundreds of students and clients of color and non-native English speakers.


In this lesson, you learn how to prepare for different speeches and presentations through the art of dramatic reading or oral interpretation. Where you figure out:


🌈 What are the most important words? What is the flow of words? What are the stresses? What is the emotion?


🌈 How to speak to your audience in a way that feels authentic to you and WHO you are and WHERE you come from


🌈 How to present content at the level as an expert in your field and the sensitivity and acumen of a professional actor and speaker


I read from two very different texts and then analyze the content itself and why I made certain decisions in my delivery.


I do this both by analyzing the argument of the speakers themselves and the language itself.


Enjoy! Dr. Shannon Wong Lerner
