Reader's Theater is a method of reading a story aloud, like a play, without memorization, props, or a stage. Students are each assigned a character role and read their parts with expression, meaning, and enthusiasm which rapidly improves reading fluency.
Plays inherently come with built-in strategies to help students read better as they work more closely with the text to interpret and project meaning. Taking on a character role in a non-threatening small group setting helps build student reading confidence.
What is Playbook®?
Playbooks® Reader's Theater stories are unique because each character's dialogue is presented in a different color throughout the story and more importantly, the roles are written at different reading levels. This allows teachers to assign easier roles to younger or struggling students and harder roles to older or more advanced students while they all read the same story together in a small group.
This specialized format is protected under U.S. Patent #7,456,834. Only Playbooks, Inc. can provide you this ultimate format. Don't settle for lesser copycats.
