Jan Maher introduces you to readers' theater, an incredibly powerful teaching and learning tool that brings history to life. Most Dangerous Women is the title of both the book and a play within the book that will be a source for integrating readers' theater into your teaching. Engage students in historical content by taking on the roles of women and men who took a stand during the peace movement - whether for it or against. As teens get into their parts, they will grapple with key literacy and history concepts such as point of view and context, explore their own beliefs, and take on responsibility for their learning. Best of all, you don't need any prior dramatic training to conduct readers' theater in your classroom because the book includes the complete script for Most Dangerous Women and guidelines for the many ways to perform it-reading aloud, staging it in class, or as a full-scale production.
Most Dangerous Women is ideal for creating a classroom where students take on responsibility for learning as well as an exciting new way to enrich and expand your students' understanding of history.
