If your students struggle to write dialogue correctly, this 3 Day unit is for you! First students will receive a handout that will remind them of the Rules for Writing Dialogue, followed by practice questions and a place for them to Practice Writing Dialogue (answer key included).
The next day the students will pair up in groups of 2-3 and participate in the Writing Dialogue Contest. In my class this activity is a timed contest, but that is up to you. (I have another Teaching Dialogue product in my store, which is nearly identical to this product, except the contest has the students using pasta to create the punctuation marks. This product requires no additional materials besides pen and paper.)
Lastly, included is a Final Assessment with 25 missing punctuation marks. There is also a modified assessment that gives a correctly quoted sentence as well as the number of punctuation marks that need to be fixed in each sentence. Then the students are prepared for any narrative writing assignment for the rest of the school year.
