In this interactive note students explore why writing that someone "said" something, is less effective than describing how they said it. Through the idea that "Said Is Dead", students are provided with alternative ways to explore writing dialogue. There is an extension activity in which students rewrite a passage with more interesting descriptive dialogue.
