This short script on FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE involves students in reading and reviewing information about words that express ideas in imaginative ways -- making writing more creative! 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 review of several ways to make reading and writing more interesting. 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.
