Character Interview

Recently the students used their iPods to conduct an interview of a character from their novel. Voice Memo is a simple app that iPods come with, was what we used to create the audio recording. These memos were then sent to me via email. The requirements included 5-10 thought provoking questions, and that the answers must be given in the voice of their character (they had a lot of fun with this!). Since we cannot really know what a character sounds like, students were able to infer using clues about the character's personality. Unfortunately audio cannot easily be embedded into Blogger, so I used Posterous to embed the audio. Here is the link to the recordings. Or, scan the QR code below to take you directly to the interviews. The students would love comments!

In Bobby's recording you can here laughing in the backround so I would suggest to record in a different spot. I also would like to here a different voice rather then just Bobby's mormal voice.
I like how in Micheal D's he used a different voice and he said no comment.
