The story of King Arthur is a fascinating one, and this retold excerpt offers an excellent example of narrative word choice in a dialogue. Learners read the text and examine the way the author uses synonyms for said. They write down all the words she used instead, then come up with some of their own. Readers also examine text features, examining the blurb from a book's back cover. Using a fiction book they are familiar with, they create their own back cover. Encourage creativity by asking for images and color as well as the text blurb.
