I wrote this Reader’s Theater script based on an excerpt of Jacqueline Woodson’s middle grade novel Harbor Me. The passage has been adapted to be read, and/or performed by four readers: Narrators 1-4. The script includes an implementation guide & reader’s notes.
The script was rehearsed, recorded, and performed by four middle schoolers as a land acknowledgement for the 2021 Thanksgiving Sharing Assembly at Berkeley Carroll. The first line of this script includes an explanation of what a land acknowledgement is, and is intended to be read as an introduction by one of the readers.
This script was written as part of the advanced certificate LMS program at Queens College (2021-2022), and implemented as part of my role as Middle School Equity & Inclusion Coordinator at Berkeley Carroll School.
