Synopsis

Just Deal with it! Funny Readers Theatre for Life's Not-So-Funny Moments by Diana R. Jenkins

A collection of humorous plays with real-life settings and contemporary characters, Just Deal with It!, includes readers theatre scripts that poke gentle fun at annoying traits, school-based dilemmas, or the embarrassing moments that are part of growing up. With resolutions that emphasize creative solutions, good humor, or cleverness, these readers theatre scripts work to improve language arts skills such as listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Theatre in the classroom also encourages appreciation of storytelling and develops understanding of basic concepts like plot, character development, and story line.
