Do your students love humorous stories? I do! That's why I created this witty Reader's Theatre script and unit based upon the book, Dear Austin: Letters From the Underground Railroad, by Elvira Woodruff (one of my favorite historical fiction writers)!
Included in this Reader's Theatre Unit download:
*Table of Contents
*Description of what Reader's Theatre is and the benefits
*Teacher's Notes that includes a summary of the book, vocabulary included in the RT from the book, reading level, number of parts for girls and boys, etc.
*Parent letter to send home
*Vocabulary from the book integrated into the script!!
*Vocabulary practice sheet
*Student rehearsal and performance checklist
*Post Discussion ?'s based on building good character (can be used for Socratic Circles too)
* ALSO: writing skill (simile) integrated into the script!
*Simile practice skill sheet
*3 1/2-page witty, laugh-out-loud script!
Thank you for browsing my item. Would you let me know how this RT goes over with your students? I would love your comments! Enjoy!
