The birth of Jesus package contains director’s notes and 2 scripts. One script emphasizes choral readings from Luke 1-2, Matthew 1-2, John 1 and Philippians 2; the other presents the birth of Christ from various characters’ perspectives in a reader’s theater format. Materials are in Word.doc and .PDF format in a zip file.

Choral readings and reader’s theater are wonderful ways to build reading fluency, comprehension (students have authentic reasons to read and reread) and a working knowledge of scripture. Strong readers can be assigned solo lines while weaker readers, shy students and ELL have the safety to speak in a group. The perspectives reader’s theater additionally provides opportunities for discussion about Biblical characters and what tone of voice they might use.
