In this lesson, you will find a Common Core I can statement cover page, a notes page, a practice page, key pointers to remember on how to use dialogue effectively page, a sample passage using a great deal of dialogue,and a partner activity with directions and a rubric.
The activity in this lesson is one of my favorites! In this activity, you will pass out the possible conversation topics included in the file. A few examples include a police officer and a speeder, a teacher and a student, a rock star and a crazed fan, and many more. You students will use the directions page to create a conversation using dialogue correctly. The lesson requires your students to use creative writing skills and a variety of speaker tags.
I use this activity in my classroom, and my students love it! As a teacher, I love how the lesson reinforces the basic skills on how to use dialogue effectively and requires the kids to use higher order thinking skills.
I hope you and your students enjoy,
