Bringing Books to Life I: Direct Adaptation

Direct Adaptation: Adapting literature for the stage is a simple and powerful way to engage middle and high schoolers with text. Using S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders as a sample text, this workshop will introduce techniques to help your students script and stage whatever you’re reading together in your classroom, whether in-person or virtually! While the text utilized is geared towards middle and high school students, this strategy is also effective with texts for younger readers.
