I believe that students learn best when engaged with high interest, authentic resources that tie multiple areas of the curriculum together. Preparing students for today's high stakes tests is often seen as a daunting task. I developed my set of 10 "jumpstart" stories with accompanying questions to provide high-quality practice with current and interesting topics for the upper elementary student. In addition, I find that students recall important content best when they are immersed in it. Reader's theaters provide the best opportunity for an integrated experience. I write all of my plays on multiple reading levels to ensure whole class participation.
