This Reader’s Theater was created because my students LOVE them! I try to make these exciting, while also teaching the kids a thing or two at the same time about History/Social Studies.
In this Reader's Theater, students travel back in time to see Martin Luther King Jr. giving his "I Have a Dream Speech" in 1963. Students learn about the inequality in America at this time and how Martin Luther King Jr. helped create change.
Students also learn the importance of celebrating Black History Month.
The play itself is 6 pages long, and has 5 different parts. I like to either use these reader's theaters in small groups, or with my guided reading groups.
There are also two comprehension pages included to get students thinking a bit more deeply about the text.
Thanks for looking!
