Character Counts! Promoting Character Education through Readers Theatre, Grades 2-5.
Pfeffinger, Charla R.
This collection provides teachers and librarians with Readers Theatre scripts to promote and reinforce character education. Each original script presents a wide variety of dilemmas and situations, often drawn from true events, and includes suggestions for presentation and props. Student interpretation enables the audience to fully understand the content of the script through the use of characterization, setting, and movement by the readers. The scripts in the collection are grouped by grade level (grade 2 through 5) and age-appropriate theme. The introduction discusses the role of Readers Theatre, preparing the scripts, getting started, presentation suggestions, props, delivery, the audience, beyond Readers Theatre, and sources. Scripts in the collection address: bravery, bullying, compassion, conflict resolution, courtesy, family, friendship, heroism, honesty, integrity, kindness, leadership, loyalty, patriotism, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and survival.
