Product Description
Aztec Guided Reading Scripts or Readers Theater
Play 1 Where?
Play 2 When?
Play 3 The Rise & Fall of the Aztecs
Play 4 Aztec Life
Play 5 Aztec Gods
Five guided reading scripts, 6 speakers each.
Around 5 minutes reading time each; plus quiz and discussions points. Around 20 minutes in total for each.
These guided reading scripts (or readers theater) were written to complement The Aztec Class Play (or assembly). They are the ideal classroom resource, combining reading, role play and assessment. The points for discussion are also another useful approach for looking at the subject from different angles.

Spanish Soldier
Sample Text:
Play 1 Where?
Narrator: OK. So let’s turn our attention first to that question: ‘Where?’
Moctezuma: My city! Tenochtitlan, on Lake Texcoco.
Cortes: There for the taking!
Soldier: What a pushover!
Warrior: For tricksters like you!
Narrator: Oh dear! There seems to be an awful lot of bad feeling around here!
Captive: I did try and warn you!
Narrator: (Impatiently) About what?
Captive: Oh just the small matter that these guys you invited absolutely hate each other!
Narrator: Really? And why would that be?
Moctezuma: The Spanish murdered my people!
Narrator: (Tutting) Hmm, well I can see that wouldn’t exactly endear them to you!
Cortes: (To Moctezuma) Oh come on! All is fair in war, you know that!
Warrior: And what was fair about deceiving your way into our city?
Captive: Well, I’d like to ask, what was fair about first capturing me and then making me walk up all those steps to certain death?
Moctezuma: But what a death! What an honour!
