Call Me, Maybe?

I decided to try the Over-Dramatic Reading. The idea is to take a piece of literature, (a movie scene, song, book, poem, etc) and record a dramatic reading of it. I chose Carly Rae Jepsen’s song “Call Me, Maybe.”

This project definitely reminded me how tone can affect the feel and meaning of words, and how differently different people can process the same information. While, not directly applicable to a math classroom, it is a good lesson to keep it mind when teaching multiple people. I also think it would be a great project for English or Social Studies; it would be fun a project that would highlight the differences between intention versus what is actually said.
