This short—one page—script on the reading comprehension skill MAKING INFERENCES has 22 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.) The script was developed with a class of third graders, so it is basic and brief. (It could easily be edited to add more than the one example from a text.)
Reading and rehearsing the script familiarizes students with the concept of making inferences while also increasing reading fluency and engaging students in a dramatic approach to learning facts. The script is one page long with the text appearing in a 2-column format.
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.
