Saki's short story "The Open Window" is a gem for middle school and beyond. Here it is presented as a script (nothing changed but arranged to accommodate its characters and four narrators), so that groups of 8-10 can read it in a classroom setting. Vocabulary words have been provided in bold and defined next to them in smaller text, so readers can keep both pace and comprehension. This is a great feature for ELL students and struggling readers. A version that allows for annotation is provided (see the demo for these features.) Study guide questions have been provided, too. This classroom-ready activity will be a treat for you and your students.
Reading scripts helps make our classes more student-centered. It engages them on a peer-to-peer basis, improves subsequent class discussions, while it gives you feedback on their reading and acting / dramatization skill levels. If you like having your students read scripts of the stories they read in the usual way, then look around my "shop" further and follow me at TPT. -- Thanks, John C.
