About the Author
I am a former special education teacher. During my teaching career, I taught all levels from birth through developmental education at the college level. During my time in high school, I was always looking for ways to expose my students to classic literature. My first attempt at adapting stories for readers’ theater scripts was “A Christmas Carol” (which has gone through many revisions). My students loved it! I was so happy to see them engaged in a story (Dickens!) they otherwise would have never read on their own. I hope you will find the same success as you use these scripts and activities in your own classroom.

***** I am always looking for more classic stories to adapt. If you have any suggestions for ones that you teach, or would like to teach, please email me at: pattispages82@gmail.com. Be sure to put TPT suggestion in the subject line, so I don’t overlook you as spam! Thanks so much for your help.
