Overview

This book, focusing on active, engaging material, will fill a void in the literature that currently exists for these students, their teachers, and literacy coaches. Readers theatre for boys and particularly middle school boys is a publishing gap that needs to be filled. Selections have been chosen to tempt middle school boys interest (the blood and gore in Masque of the Red Death for example). Literacy remains a major topic of concern in all academic circles, especially the inadequate performance of reading and writing by boys. These scripts will entertain as they build reading fluency. Grades 6-8.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ann N. Black has rewritten classics for readers theatre appropriate for middle-school boys that lends itself perfectly to the all-male classroom. . . . Black has done a terrific job finding classic literature that particularly appeals to middle-school boys including strange, frightening, and action-packed stories. . . . Black includes a short background on each author and a few paragraphs for teachers concerning production notes for costuming and staging ideas. . . . Though the title explicitly states it is readers theatre for boys, girls could easily play a variety of parts in the selections, so it would be appropriate for any middle school library, speech or drama classroom, or any classroom that studies communication."

"This book provides solid offerings of Readers Theater scripts for educators working with middle school boys. . . . The scripts have a new, fresh feel, and contain plenty of elements to capture and maintain adolescent males' attention. . . . Recommended."
