Readers Theatre For Young Adults by Kathy Howard Latrobe, Mildred Knight Laughlin, Mildred Knight Laughlin

Twelve reproducible scripts from the classics serve as examples of the readers theatre format. In addition, the authors have identified scenes from 30 contemporary novels (e.g., Prairie Songs, Tex, Gentlehands, Z for Zachariah) that are suitable for adaptation to readers theatre. An annotated bibliography of recommended works completes the guide. This unique teaching tool helps students develop a thorough understanding of theme, character, and drama.
