These scripts from Chapter 3 of "Of Mice and Men" are great ways to build student engagement. Each of the three scripts can be printed out on a double-sided sheet; each has discussions questions to be used after reading, either in the group of readers or as a whole class. I usually have 7-8 readers per group, 3 groups total. Their readings could lead to performance or just remain as a review. See the preview to see how it is arranged. Chapter 3 is where the conflict in "Mice" ramps up dramatically, excruciatingly. The dream blossoms and a nightmare unfolds relentlessly.
