Reader's Theatre is a unique and exciting way of increasing reading fluency and comprehension while engaging students of different reading levels and abilities in concepts from across the curricula.

Reader's Theatre is minimal theatre based around reading rather than performing. Narration sets each scene and no props or costumes are needed. Participating students do not need to memorise lines or characters. No preparation is needed other than the assigning of parts. Students first see the text as they are delivering it, a process that aids both engagement and comprehension when compared to other less immediate methods of text delivery.

Performing any of the books in this series, regardless of targeted subject area or designated year level, exposes your students to important elements of Language, Literature and Literacy, the three strands of the English subject in the Australian Curriculum. It is particularly concerned with the Reading and Viewing and Speaking and Listening components of the English Achievement Standards, which recur across every year level.

The books in this Reader's Theatre series all tell stories that will engage and entertain students while exposing them to concepts in Maths; Science; or Humanities and Social Sciences, respectively. While principally concerned with reading fluency and comprehension, this enables teachers to tie in each story with their own instruction and maintain relevance to these subjects throughout. Because embarking upon a Reader's Theatre piece involves students not only reading text, but delivering it aloud as they do so, all the while interacting with others as they undertake the same task, performances are reinforced with immediate real-world experience and instant, relevant feedback.

Each book in the Reader's Theatre series focuses on a topic that complements an element from the Maths; Science; and Humanities and Social Sciences, subjects in the new Australian Curriculum, while incorporating English elements throughout. Texts are additionally identified as to the reading level involved in each and give a total word count to aid the teacher in allocating time for the group reading.

This Complete Set includes all 18 books in the Reader's Theatre series.

Humanities and Social Sciences: How the Chipmunk Got its Stripes; The Magical Australian History Tour; How Teamwork Saved the Lake.

Science: Jill Gets Fit; Above the Clouds; Why the Moon Changes in the Night Sky; Tornado!; The Day I Followed My Food; The Food Pyramid Disaster; Wild Weather; The Three Sisters.

Maths: Garage Sale Today; In Search of Numbers; The Pattern Walk; Late Again!; "No Maths" Day at School; "Pet Care" Kids; Alex in Numberland.
