...offers teachers and librarians an exceptional vehicle for collaboration, perhaps expanding upon a unit in a reading textbook, introducing a biography lesson, or concluding an author study. As much of the information is nonfiction, students work not only on their fluency, but also on their comprehension of expository text. Thirty-six different plays allow for one every school week if desired, ensuring every student has an opportunity to shine with an important role.
