Product Description
Bring four American classics to life with this Reader's Theater package that features some of America's best and most famous short stories. Students will love to interact with the texts of American authors like Washington Irving, O. Henry, and Herman Melville. These scripts provide a great introduction to American literature, author studies, or short story lessons.

This package includes four originally written Reader's Theater scripts inspired by the following stories:

- Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving
- Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving
- The Ransom of Red Chief by O. Henry
- Bartleby by Herman Melville

*Note: Suggested reading is for advanced readers, however, reading levels vary school to school, classroom to classroom, and student to student, so please use the preview option before purchasing to ensure these materials are right for you. Also, feel free to adjust the scripts to meet your and your students' needs.




Reader's Theater helps to develop fluency through repeated exposure to text, increase comprehension, integrate reading, writing, speaking, listening in an authentic context, engage students, increase reading motivation, create confidence and improve the self-image of students, provide a real purpose for reading, and provide opportunities for cooperative learning. (Scholastic, 2012).
