This script on EXPOSITORY WRITING - one of four writing styles - involves students in reading and reviewing information about the type of writing that most of us encounter in our daily lives - informing, explaining, clarifying, defining, or instructing. The script incorporates humor and contemporary language and references. It’s part of a collection in my book CURRICULUM-BASED READERS THEATRE SCRIPTS: LANGUAGE ARTS.
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 an introduction and examples of Expository Writing prompts that you may expect to encounter. The script also offers a way of 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.
