Ruby Bridges was headline news in 1960 as she naively trudged into the all-white William Frantz School. Her compelling story, that of a first grader integrating New Orleans Public Schools is indelible. Famed American author John Steinbeck wrote about it. Norman Rockwell painted it. And Ruby herself, nearly forty years later, revisited it in her stunning book, Through My Eyes. By pairing Ruby's book with this lovely reader’s theater script, you’ll inspire learning that’ll stay with your students for years to come. Parts for from 12 to 24 actors and suitable for reader's theater or full stage production. Use it with students as young as 3rd grade and up to seventh to build fluency, satisfy the CCSs, and celebrate Black History Month. Includes two comprehension activities specifically designed to help students with standardized testing, answer keys, extension ideas, and teacher notes. You can also use it in conjunction with the Disney film, The Ruby Bridges Story. As with all my plays, it's fully reproducible. Purchase it once and print a full class set every year!
