In this lesson, students are put into groups for Readers Theater, and one of the key quotes from Lesson 8 is allocated to each group. Students then work in their groups to give each group member a different scene from the anchor chart for which he or she will write a Readers Theater script. It is important that each individual works on a different scene; otherwise, there will be multiple versions of the same scene in the final Readers Theater, which will be confusing. Groups may need assistance allocating scenes to individuals.
