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 match 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 can also practice reading aloud, interacting cooperatively, and using expressive voices and gestures while performing the story 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 or varied readers!
