Compare and contrast the original Rip Van Winkle with this reader’s theater version for 13 characters and a choral reading poem. Reader’s theater can build fluency and comprehension whether it is used as a pre-reading introduction or an option for readers who might struggle with the original text. It gives an authentic reason to read and reread.
Also included are 14 discussion starters, journaling prompts and assignments as well as directions for how to do choral readings and reader’s theater as a whole class or jigsaw activity, plus rubrics for reader’s theater. A Comparison Alley printable is included as an alternative to Venn diagrams for compare and contrast.
