PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Learning targets: Students will demonstrate proficiency in generating meaningful dialogue; students will grow more comfortable with timed impromptu writing.

How: Students will write a narrative in which a parent figure and good friend are stuck in an elevator and must make small talk; students will be given a specific duration in which to complete this activity.

Materials included: 1. A detailed directions sheet. 2. A general evaluative rubric. All are WORD DOCUMENTS.

You may wish to tweak the documents to reflect your students' specific needs.

I find brief writing activities like this are especially useful in Creative Writing classes, for they emphasize core concepts in the field, but they also prime students for timed writing assessments. Further, an activity like this may make a great formative to determine students' capabilities in regard to the following:

1. Generating meaningful dialogue
2. Punctuating dialogue properly
3. Identifying specific verbs to replace the overused verb "said"
4. Differentiating voice in character
