READ WITH EXPRESSION:
Pitch: Vary your pitch, high or low, to express meaning and emotion. Example: high = excited, low = calm. Change your voice to fit the characters.      
Rate: Vary your speed, faster or slower, to express meaning and emotion. Example: fast = suspenseful;  slow = sad or mysterious.      
Force: Vary your volume or energy, louder or softer, to express meaning and emotion. Emphasize important words.
