    I've never used Reader's Theater for reading comprehension. I've used it for fluency. Usually the kids pick a play and they have to practice it by switching around the roles. For the performance, they all choose a role and practice it again.

    My end of the year activity is for kids to write their RT scripts with a partner. This is a difficult task that requires the ability to condense a story to mainly dialogue. I encourage kids to choose a "favorite book". This can be a picture book or a chapter book. My really high kids love the challenge of a chapter book.

    The last week of school we read all the student scripts and perform them in front of a video camera. They love to watch themselves.
