To a) calibrate the impact of the delivery and b) group words to make them memorable.
The speaker leads a call & response with three chances to energize the audience.
A single sentence, usually created by the speaker.
We’re gonna play Human Megaphone.
Do you know that term? That’s when
a crowd echoes what a speaker says,
like at a rally.
In the game version, your job
is to echo my words
and match my enthusiasm; my job
is to pump you up.
To do that, I’ll have to group my words
into short phrases
you can actually remember.
So here we go:
Your job (Audience repeats.)
is to echo my words (Audience repeats.)
and match my enthusiasm; (Audience repeats.)
my job (Audience repeats.)
is to pump you up. (Audience repeats.)
(Repeat the call and response lines above. Then:)
That was two reps; you’ll do three,
so you can really get us fired up.
Okay, who wants to go first?
