These plays can be use with OR without the novels. Students can simply have fun performing these plays by themselves. They can also be used in conjunction with the novels. After each chapter, the students can read aloud the readers theater section that goes along with each chapter for better understanding of the novel. In addition, the teacher can also wait until the class has finished reading the novel, and then have the students perform the readers theater as a final book review before a final test. Finally, these plays can also be used as school productions.
The scripts follow the events of each novel, but some events have been streamlined to flow better in play form. The character lines are similar to the novels, but not exact. It is against copyright laws to copy the exact lines from the novels. The meaning behind the lines, however, has been preserved.
The pages are printable, however, Google doc links have also been provided for paperless copies. This is perfect for Chromebooks, ipads, desktops, laptops, cell phones, etc. Both versions are included with your purchase.

Why am I qualified to write this readers theater production? Not only have I worked as a Language Arts Teacher for 30 years with a Highly Qualified Status, but I also have spent the last 15 years writing state and national assessments, such as the SATs, ACTs, and individual state assessments that align with the Common-Core standards. This experience includes grading, item writing, and passage writing for these assessments. The passage writing experience is what prepared me for writing this readers theater.
