Satisfy Common Core Standards with Reader's Theater

(Image) Common Core State Standards

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, role-play reading is an activity spanning every corner of the subject!

Review the following excerpts from the Standards
directly involving drama:
(These are just a few examples of many.)

* Describe how a narrator’s or speaker’s point of view influences how events are described (RL6.3).
* Analyze how particular lines of dialogue or incidents in a story or drama propel the action, reveal aspects of a character, or provoke a decision (RL 8.3).
* Apply grade 5 Reading standards to literature (e.g., “Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or a drama, drawing on specific details in the text [e.g., how characters interact]”) (W 5.9).
* Compare and contrast the varieties of English (e.g., dialects, registers) used in stories, dramas, or poems) (L 5.3).
