Collector: Ann V.

For a culminating project in the final unit of Module 1, fifth-graders demonstrate what they have learned about human rights by crafting scripts for a Readers Theater performance. The unit begins with class members reading informational texts about Readers Theater and by studying scripts. Groups then select a passage from Esperanza Rising that relates to an article from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and work together to write a script based on the passage. They then perform their scripts for the entire class.
