American History Readers Theater provides hours of fluency practice that is grounded in the familiar format of American history and features characters students know and may even admire. The scripts and activities in this resource address standards in reading, speaking, and listening while providing a fun environment for everyone involved. When students practice their lines, they read and reread the same passages. Under your direction, they gradually add more expression, read more smoothly, and find any subtle meanings in the passages. American History Readers Theater also meets the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act through direct instruction in three of five key elements of reading instruction: reading fluency, text comprehension, and vocabulary development.
