Dialect Awareness in Literature and Life

Scholars read and re-write, in Standard English, a short selection from Dovey Coe and note importance of use of dialect in novel. Then they examine their own use of dialect in everyday speech, and write a narrative using both casual dialect and Standard English. By using shorter sections of text, this lesson could also work with lower grades.
