Product Description

Realistic dialogue elevates and sharpens any story. With these four activities your students will discover how and why conversations can drive their plot forward. And, what characters think or don’t say can reveal even more. Your students will learn to -

  • Recognise terrible dialogue in books and movies and discover fixes.
  • Explore what informs and motivates their characters’ dialogue.
  • Recognise and avoid common pitfalls when framing conversations.
  • Look for authenticity in the way their characters speak.
  • Punctuate and format correctly, before they start tearing their hair out!
