Sources for Interpretation Pieces for Middle School 2020

Some suggestions for coaches -

  • Talk with your Theatre Department or any theatre person in your area for plays that would be appropriate for middle school students.

  • For Prose - find out what the 4th graders like to read. Sometimes the 7th and 8th graders get too serious. Prose is storytelling. The younger child would have suggestions for a good story.

  • For Declamation - In Our Own Words edited by Senator Robert Torricelli and Andrew Carroll

  • You public library has numerous collections of short stories, plays, poetry etc.

  • The literature anthologies used in middle school often have suitable material.

  • The current YA fiction is a great place to start. Students often enjoy the authors the like to read.
