To see list of speakers, see Preview.
As with all my Guided Reading Scripts, there are 6 speakers per play script. (For a smaller class size, a script may be dropped or the speakers re-allocated). Each script comes with a quiz - an excellent assessment tool and means of focusing attention on actual learning content. I describe these plays as guided reading materials or readers' theater, as the scripts can be read as opposed to memorized, with no props.
Please note: Teaching time of 40 minutes is very approximate, depending on time spent on reading and answering quiz questions.
I have written a set of guided reading play scripts to 'compliment' every 'traditional' class play I have written. The focus of these mini plays is more on reading than performing, which is why I refer to them as 'Readers Theater' and I see them as a wonderful classroom resource, delivering the curriculum via role play. I have used this format with classes I have taught and know first-hand how well this innovative form of teaching works.
