This Lesson Plan 9: Writing Really Good Dialogue lesson plan also includes:
Budding novelists compare the differences between real-life dialogue and dialogue found in novels. They compare an excerpt from a book to IM chats and discuss how they are different and how good dialogue can move a story along while defining character. They pick apart a comic strip then use what they've learned to compose strong dialogue to use in their novels. This resource can be used on its own or with any of the others from this project. It is quite thorough!
