Invite your students to experience the lives of famous people through Readers Theater biography scripts. Choose single scripts or a series of scripts on one person from our growing Script Buffet. Why not have small groups work on different scripts? (If you're a paying member of our Script Buffet Club you may suggest future script ideas.)
IMPORTANT: Most of our biographies are available exclusively to our paying Script Buffet Club members. Each one pays a little and reaps a lot. :)
R = Readability grade level based on Flesch-Kincaide Readability Score. (Note: This score is often higher because of the word "narrator"--3 syllables! Other times it may be lower because of shorter sentences. Vocabulary is listed on front page of each script. Older scripts may have a "?" for readability--until I get the readability computed.) For example, Readability (R) 1.2 = grade 1, month 2 and Readability (R) 3.6 = grade 3, month 6.
"In This Category" is a bulleted directory of scripts organized alphabetically by last name of the biographical person, even if their name does not appear in the script title.
Below the directory are summaries for all of our biography scripts in grades 3–5 in order of publication, most recent first.
