This presentation was used to teach how to punctuate dialogue in my middle school ELA classroom. It includes dialogue taken from a grammar text with explanations and illustrations. It also includes an activity where students are given a page of text from James Patterson’s Witch & Wizard: The Gift where dialogue errors have been added. They must find and correct the 12 errors. The errors are then shown in the PowerPoint. The handout has been uploaded as the preview file so that you get it with the PowerPoint.
