  • 1.  Akeelah and the Bee Script

    Posted 01-10-2022 09:26

    Good Morning!

    I am looking for the script, Akeelah and the Bee. Can anyone tell me what publishing company would have this script? I have searched for it through Google without luck.

    Anyone have any other script suggestions for the middle school level that are more diverse in nature?  I would love to create a diversity of voices for my classroom to hear!

    Thank you!
