"A Retrieved Reformation" is a student-friendly adaption of O.Henry's classic short story, and like many O.Henry stories it ends with a twist. Improve student comprehension and fluency by using the play before reading the original text, or simply use it as an engaging literary activity. Includes two comprehension activities on context clues and making inferences. This play script is well-suited to reader's theater or full stage production and includes parts for nine to sixteen students, depending upon casting needs. Use it with students in grades 4 through 8. Originally published in the November 21, 2011 issue of Scholastic's Scope magazine. Fully reproducible: the original purchaser is licensed to reproduce one classroom set per year.
