Reader's Theatre 
 
  
  

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!
