Students Taking Action for Community Event - Reader's Theater

Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the End of WWII


Our Reader's Theater Scripts are adapted from our A BOOK by ME book series written by kids for kids. In honor of the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII, students are performing these true stories for their community on Facebook Live. Advertise your event in the local newspaper, radio or tv stations by sending this Press Release to them a week ahead of time.


You may perform this skit with or without props, costumes or a set! This activity provides practice in public speaking and an opportunity for group interaction and community discussion afterward.


Please post videos of your students acting out these skits on your social media using the following hashtags: #wwii #abookbyme #understandingworks

The following are three free Reader's Theaters from the state of Iowa.


Barbed Wire Wings is the story of a medic in WWII who helped the wounded on the front lines, liberated a concentration camp and came home feeling defeated. John attempted suicide and failed. He got the help he needed and is credited for saving lives of hopeless and defeated veterans of today's wars.

"I'm passing along the lessons from the Greatest Generation and others who have lived through hardship to future generations. Our subject's humility, sense of responsibility, and work ethic are inspiring. Having a student interview someone with a powerful story to tell is the greatest gift I can give them and those who will one day read their book." Deb Bowen
