Have you ever wanted to teach The Scarlet Letter but couldn't find the time? While preserving the author's literary style, this 52-page text adapts Hawthorne's classic novel into four 45-minute Reader's Theater script-stories. Allowing the students to inhabit classic characters like Hester Prynne and Reverend Dimmesdale brings the literature to life!
Also included with the script-stories is a teacher guide for each of the four parts, complete with relevant background information, plot summary, character analysis, symbol analysis, recall questions, and discussion questions. This download gives a single teacher permission to print the materials directly from his or her computer.

Note: These script-stories are excerpted from Searching for America: The New World by Zachary Hamby
