Readers' Theater: How to Put on a Production
Theater is a fun, interactive way to help students improve their reading fluency and oral speaking skills. It also gives students a chance to work cooperatively in groups and helps build their confidence, especially for reluctant readers. Each title in the Readers' Theater series provides information for putting on a production and a script that can be adapted to the format the school sees fit - as a skit, readers' theater, or full-on play! Teachers can download a free teacher's guide with additional tips on costumes and props and reading level information for each character on our Web site.
