Description

Class Experience

Reader's Theatre is cooperative, and provides opportunities to learn with support.  It's creative and encourages language experimentation and risk-taking.  It provides natural occasions for practice and enables children to build a repertoire of reading strategies with a purpose.  
Apart from the fun aspect, there are many opportunities for the emergent reader to become comfortable with reading a script.  
The children will have fun listening to each other, reading together and celebrating their accomplishments.
Pacing, inflection, expression and fluency will all be practiced. 
Through open discussion, students will learn thinking out of the box, improvisation and will use their imagination!
Students will gain literary comprehension and critical thinking as we delve into some of the big themes. 
What better way to encourage reading then to have some fun with Anne of Green Gables!  I have a Bachelor's Degree with a Major in Drama and a Minor in English.  
I have performed and toured with a cast where we performed across Alberta, Canada - engaging young students and bringing with us a love of drama!
I am a homeschool mom myself and I have two children with special learning needs, including Aspergers and NVLD.  I guide my teaching to each child's unique needs and will support and encourage so everyone feels comfortable and accepted.
Please print off the scripts and have them ready for class each day.  It would be great if the student had read the first book, but the scripts will be a good starting point for discussions. 
I will provide eight scripts based on Anne of Green Gables as well as some activity sheets.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please note:  There is a scene where Diana accidentally drinks alcohol.  In the original novel, there are themes of racism, this will not be included in the adapted scripts. 
I will provide four scripts based on Anne of Green Gables.
