This script is no nursery rhyme. Higher-level vocabulary is introduced, including "dowry, ennui, tresses, sublime, paltry, strife, and askew.”
The packet also contains relevant Informational text including articles on finance, economics, and the Victorian class system.
Rhyme is a fundamental part of the National Literacy Strategy and students who act out rhyme in reading gain confidence in reading ability and achievement. In groups up to four, students each have a part in this rhyming script that aligns with the plot.
