    With the widespread popularity of Marvel's Thor and the History channel's Vikings students than ever are looking to explore Norse mythologyZachary Hamby's reader's theatre scripts have brought such joy and fun into my mythology lessons that students literally ask if we can read anotherI have been using his Greek mythology scripts and would recommend them to all Humanities teachers in high schools for years with great success He's really done it again with Reaching Valhalla The Norse myths can be a challenging read for students Unlike their Greek counterparts many of the myths have not been adapted into reader friendly formats or easily accessible texts Many of the Norse myth books are lacking anything other than basic details but these scripts really flesh them out and bring the gods to life My senior students loved adding voices and sound effects as we read they loved the humour and the personalities of the godsReader's theatre is experiential for the kids and they buy into anything that gives them something to actually buy into By reading the roles aloud they become that character and are invested in what happens to them and because of that they cannot get enough of the scripts We read most of these scripts before formulating research uestions for their essays and by doing so the kids had a better sense of what actually interested them and their essays reflected thatThumbs up again Mr Hamby I love these scripts
