Practice makes perfect. We've all heard that cliche` before. Reading practice, however, can often be boring, especially for students who do not like reading. That is where Reader's Theatre comes in. Given a set script, a student reads a certain character's lines until he/she has mastered them. This is done for each character in a story until it can be "performed." When reading to an audience, the readers do not have props; they simply read the book aloud, letting inflection in voices, expressions, or minimal gestures create feeling. I have never led a Reader's Theatre that went terribly, that students did not like, or that was a waste of time. I strongly suggest trying it!
