Try Reader's Theater

End your term in a memorable way by experimenting with Reader's Theater.

First, students become experts on a topic by reading about it thoroughly.
Next, they work in small groups to write a script inspired by the content and vocabulary from the reading.
Finally, they perform the scripts in a non-formal way (no memorization, no sets, no costumes) for their classmates.
Learn how to use Reader's Theater to exploit ESL Library readings from your favorite lessons.
