Reader's theater is a great way to introduce new concepts to your students while also improving fluency and expression.
This reader's theater script is the perfect addition to your unit on westward expansion. It discusses the displacement of Native Americans in what was known as the Trail of Tears.
In this script, students will read about several fictionalized Cherokee Native Americans on their forced journey westward. Students will learn about the hardships of the journey and how Native Americans felt about being forced to move their homes.
