Reflection: Problem-based Approaches Fluency Practice: Reader's Theater - Section 2: Roles and Practice


I realize that after I split the groups I will have three students who will not have a group. I used them as my group directors. I chose three of my most fluent and comprehensive readers for these roles. The director will run the group and mediate the flow. Their first task was to write down each of their groups role assignments. They will need to track the reading and if someone is off, they can let them know it is their turn to read. 

The director is also there to make sure that the group runs smoothly. They can help with students who get stuck and can help when expression is needed.
