Want to improve your students’ reading comprehension, reading fluency and expand their vocabulary and word choice? Research shows Readers Theatre is the perfect tool for assisting young people in bettering their overall reading ability. The reading experience is heightened, and students more readily project and interpret the meaning of text with the acting out of dialogue. Plus, retention, comprehension and vocabulary all improve accordingly. Reading role models are formed and recognized when students read in small groups and consequently reading skills are greatly improved.
