Franklin’s Dialogue with the Gout
by Carol B Roberts
Oral reading and note taking activity.
The activity is designed to cover a minimum of one class period (with some homework prep, if desired.) The dialogue is divided into 36 sections, varying from four to six lines long. Sections are numbered from 1-24, with several sections subdivided into a, b, etc. to accommodate differing class sizes. Sections are assigned to individuals or to a pair of students (depending on the character(s) speaking) to read the parts of the conversation.
