Performing With Confidence

My students need 4 sets of the Genres of Literature Readers' Theater Script Boxes to develop confidence in public speaking and oral reading.

My Students

Public speaking is one of the most difficult life skills that students face. Reader's Theater provides a stepping stone opportunity to develop this skill with confidence.

We have a richly diverse school population with numerous different languages spoken in the home.

Some of the students are quite shy and introverted. There is a need for opportunities to speak slowly and clearly, develop vocabulary, and interact verbally with each other.

My Project

We have three third grade classes of thirty-two students each. We differentiate and group students by need and ability during Language Arts time. Each teacher would like to use Reader's Theater with their groups. Each year a number of students are below basic in reading and could greatly benefit from the Reader's Theater that is a grade level below so they can also experience the success of reading and speaking with confidence.

Independent oral speaking is a difficult task for most students.

However, reading orally in small groups is a step toward building the confidence to speak in front of a group of peers.
