Reader’s Theater

Reader’s Theater

Jimmie Woody

A few chairs, a couple of music stands and you have Reader’s Theater. This workshop promotes literacy using popular children’s classics such as Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, The People Could Fly, Anansi the Spider or Aesop’s Fables as staged readings. Jimmie works with your students to turn one of these stories into a wonderful staged reading for your classroom. This two-day workshop helps students develop their public speaking and drama skills as well as learn how to cooperate with one another and be creative with literature.
