Every school in our country has identified literacy as its number one challenge; now Gail Noppe-Brandon offers a different way of looking at the subject. For the past twenty years she has successfully trained a broad range of teenagers, college students, and teachers of all subjects in her literacy-through-theatre methodology. In Find Your Voice, she clearly describes how everyone can be helped to communicate more effectively and better receive the communication of others.

Find Your Voice demonstrates Noppe-Brandon's unique, relationship-based coaching style, an approach which has enabled even the shyest people to conquer their fear of written or oral public sharing. The book presents a specific sequence of exercises and activities that can improve anyone's reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. And with sample classroom applications for various age levels, Find Your Voice helps those who may never have considered re-acting or re-writing a play, and seasoned artists who have been practicing their craft for years.
