It was being felt that there was a need to tell stories effectively by deliberately learned techniques to communicate the story purposefully in the right language, movement. tone and voice.

There is a common observation that the communication competence and verbal intelligence of a good number of teachers is underdeveloped and their in-service training requires to build their rhythmic speech.

The rhythmic speaking skills have been developed in the area of storytelling and spoken word art. This has made education and training in speaking skills and voice training to master the patterns of stress and intonation in a language through workshops.

In fact, the linguists view rhythm as a movement in speech, marked by the stress, timing, and quantity of syllables. Often, rhythm is marked by the recurring alternation of strong and weak elements in the flow of sound and silence in spoken sentences or articulated lines. Basically, rhythm is produced by a combination of stressed and unstressed syllables in spoken word art.

Teachers, as professionals and classroom performers, require training in rhythmic spoken language training. To begin with, teacher must un-stress weak words such as conjunctions, pronouns, prepositions, auxiliaries, and articles to get used to rhythmic speaking as a habit, I feel.
