Front Cover
Teacher Ideas Press, Jan 1, 1989 - Education - 130 pages

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.
