    This is a book designed for use in junior high school American history classes. It includes and introduction to readers' theater and 15 readers' theater scripts that span from the colonial period to the moon landing. The scripts are 3 pages each and include discussion questions for use in the classroom. One thing that I like is that each unit includes ideas for student written scripts based on reading recommendations. Having said that, I probably won't use any of these scripts since they don't match what I'm teaching in my classes, but I will be using them as a reference for how to write readers' theater scripts and discussion questions for them.
