This short (one page, two columns) script on ELEMENTS OF PLOT involves students in reading and reviewing information about the critical elements in a story or play. The script incorporates humor and contemporary language and references. It’s a newly-developed script, but it could be included in a Part 2 version of my book CURRICULUM-BASED READERS THEATRE SCRIPTS: LANGUAGE ARTS, if I collect enough additional Language Arts Readers Theatre scripts.
This script is written for solo speakers with many parts for ALL so that teachers can use it with a whole class. Reading and rehearsing the script provides information about the essential parts of plot while also increasing reading fluency and engaging students in a dramatic approach to learning facts. Students enjoy creating and performing gestures and sound effects where indicated in the stage directions. And—because it is a script—they do not mind reading and re-reading the information. This Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre script is one of many I have created with students and teachers across the United States.
