Reader’s theater brings a here and now feel to history while giving students an authentic reason to read and reread. Repeated readings with intonation and expression further deepens understanding of characterization and forces that drove people in the past. It
is an excellent way to increase comprehension and character analysis as reader's use their voices to become the characters and immerse themselves into the past.
