Lesson Plan 10: Writing Really Good Dialogue

This Lesson Plan 10: Writing Really Good Dialogue lesson plan also includes:

Boring dialogue can run a great story into the ground; get your novelists using dialogue as a tool to move their story into deeper and more developed territory. As part of a larger writing series, this lesson has a worksheet that can easily be found online. Learners consider why daily discourse isn't interesting and read some examples. They complete a boring comic strip and then spice it up by writing a separate comic from an exciting prompt. Writers apply these skills to their novel by creating another comic using dialogue between their main character and villain. Have them illustrate it for homework!
