Readers Theater, or RT, has been gaining popularity all around the island these years, and Taichung City also encourages English teachers to adopt it as a teaching strategy in the classrooms, helping integrate reading comprehension and speaking skills. Therefore, the RT Competition is meant to provide such a good opportunity for both teachers and the English learners to keep on improving themselves.
Teacher Archie, a well-know activist of RT, has been so dedicated to help English teachers have a basic concept of RT and be able to write their own scripts. As far as I know, he is compiling a book specifically for the use of RT as a teaching technique. He is usually invited by the Advisory Group to judge the competition as well. On top of that, what he can share with teachers are not just abstract theories but abundant field experiences, like how to rewrite a story or train students to compete in a competition.
For those teachers who attended the workshop, I’m sure you must all be learning a lot about RT. If you are planning to coach students and attend the competition next semester, you can find the live DVD and gain some helpful insights, or you can have a look at this, which is my personal ideas about the competition after we won the second place this May^^.
