Readers Theater: Format

Screen Shot 2018-10-08 at 9.01.06 AM.png

I love readers theater! I’ve published entire books of readers theater plays and scripts for teachers to use in the classroom. Plus, I write individual readers theater plays and sell them in my online store at Teachers Pay Teachers. And I usually include at least one readers theater play in every educator’s guide I create to help market one of my published books.

If you have a fancy art publishing program that you already know how to use, you can create your readers theater in that format and add all the bells and whistles you want.

But if you’re technologically challenged (like I am) you can just create a readers theater script using a simple Word document and make it look very professional! That’s the format I use most of the time and it’s the format I’ll show you how to use. It’s easy peasy. And that’s how I like it.

Here are several examples of readers theater plays I’ve written and published to sell in my online store, TEACHER PLUS WRITER. Look at the free previews and check out the basic format that first meets your eye.

Readers Theater: Frederick Douglass and the Emancipation Proclamation

Readers Theater: John and Abigail Adams Move into the White House

Let Freedom Ring! A Readers Theater Script on the Declaration of Independence

We’ll talk more about format in upcoming posts, but I have exciting news to share! For the next 2 days, I’ll be hosting a giveaway here on my blog for 2 free books! Stay tuned for details on how you can put your name in a hat for the chance to win one of these fun titles!!!
