Product Description
Set of 5 Guided Reading Play Scripts (Readers Theater):
1. Background - Sacagawea's childhood - Life with the Shoshone
2. Life with the Minnetaree
3. Wife and Guide
4. Expedition
5. Sacagawea's Legacy
These 5 scripts, written by Sue Russell, have 6 speakers each, plus quiz for each script to assess learning. As they follow the course of Sacagawea's life from beginning to end, they could easily be adapted into a class play.
To see list of speakers, see Preview.
Please note: Teaching time of 40 minutes is very approximate, depending on time spent on reading.
As with all my Guided Reading Scripts, there are 6 speakers per play script. (For a smaller class size, a script may be dropped or the speakers re-allocated). Each script comes with a quiz - an excellent assessment tool and means of focusing attention on actual learning content. I describe these plays as guided reading materials or readers' theater, as the scripts can be read as opposed to memorized, with no props.
I have written a set of guided reading play scripts to 'compliment' every 'traditional' class play I have written. The focus of these mini plays is more on reading than performing, which is why I refer to them as 'Readers Theater' and I see them as a wonderful classroom resource, delivering the curriculum via role play. I have used this format with classes I have taught and know first-hand how well this innovative form of teaching works. For the complete collection of guided reading play scripts I have written, visit my website
Also available at half price this month: plays on The Mayflower and Early Colonial Times.
