Reader's Theater meets nearly 50 objectives in the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy! Reference to drama is woven throughout the entire 66-page document, revealing reader's theater as applicable to sections addressing literature, language, fluency, and even writing. Per the elements in these standards, roleplay reading is an activity spanning every corner of the subject!

Designers of the Common Core State Standards Initiative have carefully crafted these standards through collaboration with experts, teachers, and education administrators in an effort to make curriculum requirements consistent across the nation, and by matching the guidelines to the highest standards, to raise the achievement levels of all students. So clearly, educational progressives recognize the far-reaching benefits of plays and expressive reading opportunities such as reader's theater.

 

While it's traditionally been considered supplementary reading, experts make a strong case that reader's theater should be adopted as an automatic best practice for all literacy curriculums from elementary through high school with support from the Common Core State Standards and more. Large text books may be a sure way to incorporate all the standards required for the classroom, but the pay off in student learning is much higher with interactive methods such as reader's theater. When students are engaged in and enjoy what they are reading, you are promoting effective literacy development, successful young people for the future ... and book lovers for life!
