Ideas from ENG ED 275 discussion posts

Online I found some suggestions from teacher’s who are experienced in using reader’s theater.

Start off with easy scripts – scripts that use words students are familiar with
Select scripts that allow for many students to be involved
Give students the opportunity to read their part silently and to read it aloud to themselves
Make sure each student has their own script
Model specific parts to children so they know what you are expecting
Where Can A Teacher Find Resources:
