This script is arranged to be read by groups of eight students, though this can be modified. With several groups reading or acting it out, everyone is involved with parts and gets inside the story, strengthing comprehension and making discussions more lively. Students highlight their parts before reading so they can anticipate their parts and stay in character. After reading the script, students in groups of four brainstorm and reflect on the questions provided. Next, discuss and share as a class. This script starts with the story's seventh paragraph, so it is meant follow / accompany a full reading of the story. The script is six pages (3 double sided) with questions that follow. To see a sample, download the demo of the first page and a half. Other activities, including student responses, accompany the full file.
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.
