Transcript of Maggie's Voice Prezi

Guessing Game Directions:
Read the following quote and try to figure out who said it. Be ready to tell me what clues you found that helped you figure out your answer. So bring your friends, all of y'all come inside
We got a world premiere right here, now get live!
So don't change the dizzle, turn it up a little
I got a living room full of fine dime brizzles
Waiting on the Pizzle, the Dizzle and the Shizzle
G's to the bizzack, now ladies here we gizzo So who is it???
What clues helped you figure out your answer? Answer: S-N double O-P
D-O double G DUH. This one's for you to LISTEN to: look here! not here. or here. So who is it?
What clues did you find to help you figure that out? Answer: Character Name:

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd tow'rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep. So who wrote this???
What clues helped you figure out your answer? Answer: Shakespeare! would you of recognized it better if I had used a sonnet instead? Sonnet 138:
When my love swears that she is made of truth,
I do believe her though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutored youth,
Unlearn’d in the world's false subtleties.
Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
Although she knows my days are past the best,
Simply I credit her false-speaking tongue,
On both side thus is simple truth suppressed.
But wherefore says she not she is unjust?
And wherefore say not I that I am old?
O love's best habit is in seeming trust,
And age in love loves not to have years told.
Therefore I lie with her, and she with me,
And in our faults by lies we flattered be. “At noon the tractor driver stopped sometimes near a tenant house and opened his lunch: sandwiches wrapped in waxed paper, white bread, pickle, cheese, Spam, a piece of pie branded like an engine part. He ate without relish. And tenants not yet moved away came out to see him, looked curiously while the goggles were taken off, and the rubber dust mask, leaving white circles around the eyes and a large white circle around nose and mouth. The exhaust of the tractor puttered on, for fuel is so cheap it is more efficient to leave the engine running than to heat the Diesel nose for a new start. Curious children crowded close, ragged children who ate their fried dough as they watched. They watched hungrily the unwrapping of the sandwiches, and their hunger-sharpened noses smell the pickle, cheese, and Spam. They didn’t speak to the driver. They watched his hand as it carried food to his mouth. They did not watch him chewing; their eyes followed the hand that held the sandwich. After a while the tenant who could not leave the place came out and squatted in the shade beside the tractor.” So who wrote this???
What clues helped you figure out your answer? Answer: So...We were able to guess the people from the game by recognizing characteristics and elements of their individual style and VOICE... Writer's Voice Writer's voice is the literary term used to describe the individual writing style of an author.

Voice was generally considered to be a combination of a writer's use of syntax, diction, punctuation, character development, dialogue, etc., within a given body of text or across several works.(Wikipedia) Dude... in American please. ... Alright, let's go back to the theme of recording artists. Consider
Adele Could you ever imagine her performing
in the style of someone like... say... Lil Wayne? But why not? So her soulful voice wouldn't match, work with,or have the same effect with his style, and even more specifically his genre (rap).
So Adele has her own specific voice, style, and genre just like authors, poets, playwrights, and writers. Also, just like Adele uses the appropriate deep, strong voice to match her soulful lyrics and music there is a match between the voice you own and when it's appropriate to use it. Sometimes artists don't get this memo... ..Lil Wayne, smh. And of course there are always exceptions and beautiful mixes between voices, genres, and styles... B.o.B. and Hayley Williams But this doesn't always work as perfectly as it did with them, and often artists try to be Lil Waynes and cross voices, styles, and genres resulting in failure. But sometimes it's hilarious: There is always a specific time and place to use certain voices and styles.

Three writing voices and styles
we're going to focus on in this lesson are: Informal Writing
Creative Writing
Academic/Formal Writing What's her
music like?
Her voice?
Wait what's VOICE?! ...
