Act out the story of a young boy named Charles who is an indentured servant. In this script, students will learn about indentured servitude and slavery as Charles befriends a young slave and the two of them join a group of pirates in hopes of finally becoming free!
The six roles in this script are at different reading levels, enabling teachers to use differentiation strategies. These strategies allow all students to engage in the same activity, regardless of their current reading level. All students can feel successful and can gain confidence in their reading fluency.
Students will practice reading aloud, interacting cooperatively, and using expressive voices and gestures while performing together. An accompanying poem and song give readers additional resources to practice fluency in an engaging way. This dynamic script is the perfect tool for a classroom of varied readers!
