Travel back in time to when the Declaration of Independence was written. Students will act out the roles of the writers, experiencing the thoughts and feelings they had while creating this revolutionary document.
This leveled script allows teachers to implement differentiation and English language learner strategies. This feature allows teachers to assign each role based on students' individual reading levels, encouraging everyone to get involved in the same activity. Whether students are struggling or proficient readers, they can all gain confidence in their reading fluency and feel successful.
By performing together, students will also practice interacting cooperatively, reading aloud, and using expressive voices and gestures while storytelling. With an accompanying poem and song to give readers additional fluency practice, this script is a dynamic resource that will engage a classroom of varied readers.
