PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I first published this in NCTE's Ideas Plus, Book Ten (1992) under the title, "Banish Those Dialogue Demons." Since then, I have refined it for details and clarity and to add Common Core Standards and Bloom's Taxonomy goals.

Middle and High School students need to learn how to follow proper dialogue format.These lessons were born out of frustration after I read yet another secondary student-written short story that showed very little understanding of this concept. I used this lesson every year in grades 7-12 English and creative writing classes with much success.

The Middle School and High School student duos enjoy creating conversations and conflicts after each person chooses a character and one setting per pair (example: a logger, and an astronaut meet in a cafe in Marrakesh). They don't even complain during the proofreading and revision stages. Character (32) and Setting (16) cards are included.

This 13-page product is aligned with Common Core Standards and Bloom's Taxonomy.
