No matter what the content area, one goal all teachers share is for students to actively engage in learning and achieve deep comprehension of required content material. This book will show you how to use Curriculum Based Readers Theatre (CBRT) to increase your students' motivation and active engagement with learning, as well as their fluency.
Unlike traditional Readers Theatre, which is typically limited to literature-based scripts, CBRT allows you and your students to create scripts based on any topic, any work of literature, any textbook, or almost any collection of facts. It can be easily incorporated into your existing curriculum, and because this method emphasizes spoken words and gestures, not staged action, no theatrical training or background is necessary.
