Readers' Theater, fluency


This study involves incorporating Readers’ Theater into a small group as a means of determining its effectiveness on a young reader and its influence on reading attitudes. I introduce the terms and conditions of this study as well as key definitions. Literature research on the topic of Readers’ Theater and other reading interventions are discussed within this paper as well. At the end of this paper, I conclude my research and its effectiveness while presenting data and observations. Within this study it was determined that Readers’ Theater had a positive impact on fluency but a mutual effect on ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development), Lexile Level, and reading attitudes.
