Twelve reproducible scripts from the classics serve as examples of the readers theatre format. In addition, the authors have identified scenes from 30 contemporary novels (e.g., Prairie Songs, Tex, Gentlehands, Z for Zachariah) that are suitable for adaptation to readers theatre. An annotated bibliography of recommended works completes the guide. This unique teaching tool helps students develop a thorough understanding of theme, character, and drama.
