In reading a novel, I sometimes wish that the author would have written in a scene that I’d like to see. This activity gives students the opportunity to do just that! With a partner, students SILENTLY create dialogue between two characters from To Kill a Mockingbird that does not exist in the original novel.
This exercise shows students' understanding of the characters involved and provides them with practice writing with proper dialogue punctuation and grammar.
3 scenarios are provided for students to choose from, plus one "create a scene that doesn't exist in the novel" option. Directions and rules for dialogue are included.
Students have a lot of fun with this...and it is a silent activity, so I get a little break, too!
