Readers Theatre gives students, especially those those who rarely experience success, a way to succeed. Often students with weak reading skills or behavior issues are the ones who shine.
This residency teaches all 3rd graders how to project their voices, to enunciate and to speak with emotional expression. As a result, shy students speak more loudly and clearly, often resulting in a boost to their self-confidence.
Mary Beth’s programs are based on the work of
Dr. Rosalind M. Flynn,
the developer of an instructional strategy called
Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre.
