About the Series:
series uses classroom-tested Reader's Theater script-stories specifically designed for 6th-12th grade students to re-tell the great myths and legends of world mythology. Reader's Theater is an innovative and powerful teaching tool that allows students to break away from silent reading and actively participate in an "acting out" experience where words and myth come to life!
Extras for Teachers:
Each script-story is prefaced by a 2-page teacher guide providing a synopsis of the myth, relevant background information and commentary on the myth, anticipatory questions for pre-script discussion, essential questions to help analyze the "big ideas" behind each myth, recall questions to check reading comprehension, and instructions for teaching commonly-tested terms and literary devices using each play. Also included is the highly exciting Tournament of the Gods game (designed for an entire class to play) and the Mount Olympus Find-It Puzzle with 25+ objects hidden within it. Three bonus myths (presented in worksheet format) add more information to the stories. And that's not all! A glossary of important characters and a name pronunciation guide are included. This book in the series also features original illustrations by the author.
