Scary Reader's Theatre by Suzanne I. Barchers

Deliciously ghostly, startling, and downright scary scripts will make you and your students listen, ponder, shiver, chuckle, or even jump!

Elementary, middle school, and chapter teachers will find them invaluable for enhancing the language arts program and for use with developing and remedial readers. An introduction provides everything you need to get started.
