Put the ARTS in Language Arts....
Enjoy the drama of great books... Read Aloud. Join in & breath life into literature with your students. We will have Mrs. Maggio's drama students and a cast of thousands (well...probably under a hundred) for a Reader's Theater extravaganza at the end of Q3. While you may just want to watch, we also hope that we will have participating classes (teachers & students) to prepare short dialogues (adapted or derived from books). Plan ahead and tie into your curriculum. Why not ask your students to create short scripts derived from a favorite book. (or completely original shorts inspired by their favorite books.) A smartly written and performed story might inspire others to read the book.
