What is Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre?
Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre (CBRT) is an arts-integrated learning process that involves teachers and students in creating scripts about content information.
The short scripts created have a dual purpose—to inform about a curriculum topic and entertain an audience.
Once the student-playwrights complete their scripts, they read, re-read, rehearse, and perform their original scripts in this classroom activity that merges drama, theatre, writing, reading, speaking, listening, and content learning.
This is a live, interactive experience. Educators work in real time with the presenter to participate, pose questions, and influence instruction.
“As for your online workshop, the format has been very beneficial to my staff this year. Having the interactive session allowed my teachers the ability to dialogue with you throughout the session so that they could fully understand the concepts and ideas presented in the workshop."
