After each group has performed a play, have students switch parts. This will provide expanded fluency practice by allowing students to experience different characters and varied punctuation, phrasing, and intonation. It will also give students a chance to enjoy reading large roles as well as small ones and, at the same time, ensure that each student gets adequate reading time for fluency practice!
