Choose any written material (a song, poem, short book, excerpt from a novel, scene from a television show, news article, etc.) and record a dramatic reading. Read your selection in a way that alters the message of the original material (at an odd pace, overly excited, sad, etc. -- be creative, make it your own). Make sure you mention what it is you are reading, and who the author of the material is.
