Act It Out With Readers' Theater
Grades K - 5. Since readers' theater focuses on reading instead of memorization, it is an effective tool for teaching fluency, one of the key components of the Reading First Initative. Each book contains curriculum area plays; leveled roles for students with varying reading skills; instructions for performing and critiquing plays; teacher pages and helpful hints for each play; staging, costume, and prop suggestions to transform each play into a full dramatic production; instructions for connecting the top of each play to other curriculum areas; comprehension pages; and answer keys. 112 pages.
