  5. Why use Readers Theatre? • Reader's theater is often defined by what it is not -- no memorizing, no props, no costumes, no sets; readers’ theatre is a performance script that the students will act out or read. • Readers’ theatre allows the student to interpret the text, put their own voices, expression and essentially become the character that they are portraying.

  6. Why use Readers Theatre? • Besides being a change of pace from the traditional way it also helps students to increase fluency and comprehension as well as offering a different context in which students are exposed to texts focusing on poetry, science, social studies, or other content-related topics
