Description

September 11, 2001 was a significant day in our American history. I created this reader's theater toolkit in order to give my students my history of the event, as well as allow for them to deepen their understanding through research.

This toolkit includes:

• clear directions for easy implementation

• CCSS covered both ELA and History R.H.6-8.4

• 7-page, 12-character reader's theater script

• reader response questions

• context clue word work

• an informational text with reader response questions for Close Reading and compare and contrast work

• a Venn diagram for compare and contrast between the two texts

• Interview questions

• research sites for student research

• research bubbles, an interactive tool for recording research

Estimated Lexile Measure: 800

I have included a prologue so that your students will have an understanding of how this reader's theater came to be. They will be more excited than ever to find out a bit more about our US History!
