Readers Theater

As the name suggests, readers theater is a reading exercise in which students act out scenes from novels.

Students are not expected to memorize their lines! Allow plenty of time to rehearse, and invite students to be creative with the use of intonation and gesture to liven up their part. Costumes and props can add an element of fun, but they are not necessary.
