The Value of Readers Theatre: Claims, Programs, and Research.
Winegarden, Alan D.
This paper seeks to identify and clarify the claims made for readers theatre, a group form of oral interpretation. After summarizing the claims made in support of readers theatre as an educational aid and as therapy, five innovative programs implementing readers theatre are examined. In the final section of the paper, four studies testing the effectiveness of readers theatre are reviewed. A bibliography of books, articles, and unpublished works on readers theatre is attached.
