Aztec Guided Reading Scripts Sample Text:
Play 1 Where?
Narrator: OK. So let’s turn our attention first to that question: ‘Where?’
Moctezuma: My city! Tenochtitlan, on Lake Texcoco.
Cortes: There for the taking!
Soldier: What a pushover!
Warrior: For tricksters like you!
Narrator: Oh dear! There seems to be an awful lot of bad feeling around here!
Captive: I did try and warn you!
Narrator: (Impatiently) About what?
Captive: Oh just the small matter that these guys you invited absolutely hate each other!
Narrator: Really? And why would that be?
Moctezuma: The Spanish murdered my people!
Narrator: (Tutting) Hmm, well I can see that wouldn’t exactly endear them to you!
Cortes: (To Moctezuma) Oh come on! All is fair in war, you know that!
Warrior: And what was fair about deceiving your way into our city?
Captive: Well, I’d like to ask, what was fair about first capturing me and then making me walk up all those steps to certain death?
Moctezuma: But what a death! What an honour!
