Born Storytellers: Readers Theatre Celebrates the Lives and Literature of Classic Authors
Students in grades 6-12 assume the roles of authors of classic literature, characters from the books, and storytellers. Through the dialogue, the audience will have a glimpse into the life of the author and reactions and thoughts of the characters. The storytellers assume a contemporary voice to react and clarify the times, while passages from the books are paraphrased or woven into the play to provide a flavor of the literature class. In contrast to Classic Readers Theatre for Young Adults (Barchers and Kroll), this focuses on the lives of the authors.

This is an awesome way for students to learn about the lives of famous writers and their works...unfortunately, the publisher has put a restriction on this ebook which prevents the pages from being printed or copied...this makes using the scripts impossible. Had to request a refund.
