Our Group Readers Theater: Managing the Sequence of Events in Our Script

Go with the flow. Scholars learn how using transition words and phrases helps their scripts flow smoothly. After determining the sequence for their readers' theater manuscripts from To Kill A Mockingbird, readers think about how to connect each section together. They use an excerpt from Writing Transitions and a transition model to guide their thought processes.
