Ten readers theatre scripts based on some of the most famous, sensational trials in U.S. history provide a fascinating glimpse into our past and our justice system. These compelling dramas are based on actual trial proceedings, and have been adapted to the interest and reading level of students in upper elementary and middle school. Details of the crime have been incorporated into the trial format allowing the story to unfold through the eyes of the jury. The verdict is detailed in a separate section, allowing students to decide what the outcome should be. These scripts are wonderful tools for enhancing history, social studies, civics, humanities, or the English program. They sharpen critical thinking skills through the deliberation process; help build and refine reading, oral presentation, and performance skills.
