This is a religious reader's theater intended for a small group of 6 students. Ever wondered what the parable of the Sower and the Seed was about? This will help you understand it! In the script, three of four friends answer an altar call one Sunday. This story is what happens to them after that experience. Cammy did not answer it, Hilton tries for a brief time to do better, Will works to do better but gives up, and Nelson works hard and prays daily to keep working and following what he believes. The four students’ friendship is at stake. Each is forced to make a decision about what is more important, God or self-will.
There is a small writing assignment at the end for students. It would make a great skit performed before a sermon or before a discussion in class. I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
