The attached product is for two reader's theaters to correspond with Chapters 6 & 8 in "Johnny Tremain" by Esther Forbes. Each reader's theater uses the exact dialogue from the chapters to present the events in the novel. These are ready to print and use.
Chapter 6 - The Boston Tea Party. This read aloud goes through the events leading up to and including Johnny's role in the Boston Tea Party.
Chapter 8 - So A Man Can Stand Up. This read aloud goes through a secret Sons of Liberty meeting where James Otis explains the purpose of gaining independence from Great Britain.
Each theater comes with the roles of the characters and a narrator. I usually make a class copy then print one copy for each of the parts to use. I highlight the character's lines in these scripts so the reader's theater will move more easily. The students really enjoy participating in these types of interactive role plays. It is a unique way to close read or re-read text.
