Have You Tried Readers' Theater in Your Reading Classroom?
Piccinino, Barry
This paper advocates the use in the college reading classroom of Readers' Theater (a medium in which two or more oral readers, without memorization, special costumes, lighting, props, or sound effects, through creative oral reading cause an audience to explore drama, prose, and poetry). Sections in the paper discuss: the definition of readers' theater; its advantages and disadvantages; choices of materials and suggested materials; cutting and adaptation; classroom use; personal considerations; physical arrangement and movement; rehearsal; onstage and offstage focus; and group self-evaluation.
