Product Description
This brief (just about 2 pages long) script on the topic of Fort Mose, the first free African settlement in what is now the United States has 12 solo speakers and many parts for ALL so that teachers can use it with a whole class. (Note: You may add or subtract solo speakers to customize the script for the size of your group.) Using a time travel machine context, this script provides a brief overview of information about the community that formed in Florida in the 1700s.

Special note to Florida teachers—This script was developed to address Social Studies Standard SS.4.A.3.5: Identify the significance of Fort Mose as the first free African community in the United States.

Reading and rehearsing the script familiarizes students with some basic facts while also increasing reading fluency and engaging students in a dramatic approach to learning facts. The script is close to two pages long with the text appearing in a 2-column format. A fluent and expressive read-through/performance takes about 6 minutes.

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.

For more details and tips about using these scripts with students, you may want to download the FREE copy of "CURRICULUM-BASED READERS THEATRE: A Guide to the Classroom Use of this Strategy" available in my store.
