My eighth-grade reading class is currently studying "The Diary of Anne Frank." They are really into it, and seem to be enjoying the story, but unfortunately, there are only ten character parts in the play, and I have 22 students in my class. This leads to issues because most kids want to read, and there aren't enough parts for everyone. I have been dividing the class in half, and letting half read one day, and half the next. But I'm not sure this is the best way to keep EVERYONE engaged, and not just the students who are reading that day. Anyone have any ideas on effective ways to read plays as a class? Or any specific activities or graphic organizers that go well with drama? This is the longest work we have read aloud so far, and I just want to make sure that my students haven't forgotten the beginning of the play by the time we get to the end. . .
