Reader's Theatre

A strategy in which students read story scripts aloud during an informal skit or performance. In this active approach to reading, a student assumes the role of a character and reads his script aloud. A teacher works with small groups of students to help them read their scripts accurately, fluently, and with proper inflection. This experience can improve a child’s reading fluency, comprehension and self-confidence.
