Dramatizing the Content With Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre, Grades 6-12 is an excellent resource for bringing subject matter to life. After reading the book and putting this activity into practice, I have found that it has fostered student interest and engagement. I plan to pass these ideas along to my colleagues in other subject areas, as using CBRT would be highly beneficial for students in math, science, or social studies classes. --English Journal --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
