Oral Interpretation is a great way for students to gain valuable speaking experience and to improve self-confidence. We have a great team here in Baltic and will image of a chair on a stage saying oral interpretationcontinue to in the upcoming years. We have a number of younger members who will be a great asset to the team in the future. 

The beginning of the year is marked by students scattering around to find their pieces, practicing them in front of mirrors, and finally, getting ready for that first competition. 

Oral Interpretation of literature teaches students how to present published pieces of literature in such a way that listeners are drawn into the presentation. Students study the seven events currently offered by the South Dakota High School Activities Association:  poetry, serious prose, humorous, serious drama, oratory, duet interpretation of literature and readers theater. Students are required to attend at least two oral interp contests.
