This activity makes a great warm-up, sub plan, or mini-lesson to help students write effective dialogue. It specifically focuses on writing dialogue that reveals details about a character. Students read a scenario and then write different dialogue for the character based on a given trait (kind, rude, shy, etc.).
This works well to help students consider how dialogue can develop characters in their writing. It is ready to print and use today, and would be a great addition to an interactive notebook.
