Product Description
Two of Mark Twain’s humorous short stories are presented in reader’s theater format: The Million Pound Note and The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. Also included are lesson plans with NCTE and Virginia standards, review games, a How and Why of Reader’s Theater and a How to Use the Jigsaw Method. (ZIP file with PDF’s)

Recall and higher level thinking questions plus a variety of formal assessments make the lessons easy to tier.

Makes an excellent pre-reading activity not only to provide a reason to read but also to introduce Twain’s use of dialect and humor.
