The Liberty Bell: Saving the Sound of Freedom (Reader's Theater) (Paperback)
By acting out this story, students will bring the history of the American Revolution to life! Readers will learn how brave citizens of Philadelphia saved the iconic Liberty Bell during the British invasion. This Reader's Theater script features roles written to match multiple reading levels. Teachers can assign specific roles to their readers based on each student's current reading level, allowing all students to get involved in the same activity and feel successful! Students will gain confidence in their reading fluency through performance, regardless of their current reading ability. While performing with others, students will practice performance, interacting cooperatively, reading aloud, and using expressive voices and gestures to better tell the story. These drama scripts for students are a great way to teach literacy and engage all learners!
