GRADE: any
LENGTH: 30 minutes
TOPIC: reading short texts and re-enacting them for the class



Fins a few interesting short stories based on the level of your students (this website is a great source), print them out and make copies. Then divide students into small groups, give each group a different story, and tell them to read it quietly. Afterward, they should rehearse it and get ready to perform it for their classmates.

When they are done rehearsing, let your students prepare a list of short answers/multiple choices/true or false reading comprehension questions that they will ask their classmates after they are done. This is to not only engage the audience, but also to evaluate how well the actors capture the events of the story.
