Students pretend to be newscasters who tell a familiar gospel story.

EXAMPLE: I told my students that we were going to pretend to be newscasters describing the events of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Each zone received a section of Matthew 21 to give a news cast on. The parables were difficult, but the kids were able to cover them by doing those interview-style, like "You were present when Jesus spoke to the Pharisees. What did you see? What did he say? What did all that mean? What was the reaction of the people?"

I don't know if all classes love acting out, but my kids love, love, LOVE it. It's a fun way for them to practice reading text, finding what's important, and then explaining it to the group. It's triple repetition for them that helps with both learning and comprehension.
