Game: Synchronized Speaking

The abilities to listen carefully, to both lead and follow, and to read other people, are important in so many aspects of librarianship. In reference and instruction, in being a valuable team member, in supervising others... It's hard to think of an aspect of our work where such skills are not an asset. This simple game offers the opportunity to practice these skills.

How to play

Three or more players. Two players will be identified as the synchronized speaker. Their role is to answer questions or tell a story in one voice, with no prior planning. Other players can ask questions or offer a prompt to get a story going. Questions should move beyond those of a yes/no nature.
  • Example:
    Player one: Please tell me what interests you about this job
    Players 2 and 3 extemporaneously answer the question in unison
