Readers Theater is a dramatic presentation of a written work in a script .

Readers Theater is a dramatic presentation of a written work in a script form. Readers read from a "script" and reading parts are divided among the readers. No memorization, costumes, blocking, or special lighting is needed. Presentations can easily be done in a k-3 classroom. Scripts are held by the readers. Lines are not memorized. Reader's Theater proved to be almost a magic solution for Griffith: In just 10 weeks of using RT, every child in her class had gained a full grade level in reading. After a year, the children's gains had jumped to three years of growth. Griffith calls the transformation in their reading fluency totally remarkable.

We have all had experiences with sickness, care giving, physicians, medical emergencies, hospitals, and doctors’ offices. Health concerns are not solely the domain of medical students, physicians, or nurses—we all deal with our personal well-being and the health of our loved ones on a daily basis. Sometimes these health problems cause us to consider larger social and ethical issues. How do we respond and relate to such matters?

In order to help both lay people and medical professionals consider various health care issues, East Carolina University's Brody School of Medicine developed a medical readers' theater program. Compiled for the first time in a single text, Medical Readers’ Theater: A Guide and Scripts provides a vehicle for those who wish to engage in discussions among citizens and professionals about important, topical issues in contemporary medicine.

Consisting of fourteen readers’ theater scripts, a step-by-step guide to performing readers’ theater, and questions for post-performance discussions, this volume utilizes stories by William Carlos Williams, Susan Onthank Mates, Arthur Conan Doyle, Pearl Buck, and many more. Physician/patient relationships, organ donation, chronic illness, race and ethnicity, death and dying, and aging are just a few of the topics covered in this valuable text.

Medical Readers’ Theater can be used in classrooms, hospitals, libraries, or other community settings where citizens can consider views on issues of common concern in the medical world.

Sample questions from Medical Readers’ Theater:

Do you think race/gender/sexual orientation/socioeconomic status play a role in the way health care professionals deal with patients?

Is medicine’s role to deal with the larger issues of society or with the narrower matter of healing the sick?

Is it surprising to learn that physicians can be uncertain about the decisions they make about patients?

Do patients have realistic expectations of physicians?

Comments to eBook Medical Readers' Theater: A Guide and Scripts
Datrim
I presented Ann Bean's adaptation of Richard Selzer's "Follow Your Heart" at the Medical University of South Carolina-Charleston in 2014. Because of her artful pacing of the narrative, especially the letter exchange between the donor's widow and the heart recipient, the six volunteer readers kept the subject matter of a heart transplantation both riveting and humorous. I highly recommend it.

This book includes a series of well written, emotionally evocative play scripts that stimulate discussion on the complexities of being or becoming a doctor. I have used several of them to good effect with medical students at various levels. The method described also lends itself to other fields, including the training of lawyers, other medical professionals, business people, clergy or counsellors of many stripes. In this modest volume, Dr. Todd has made a valuable contribution to allying humanities with professional education.
