Spend a productive hour in the classroom with this tutorial where junior high writers discover how to create snappy dialogue. The learning begins with an analysis of sample writing and discussion on the effectiveness of each piece. The activity moves to a small group brainstorming activity where the groups think of words to describe their dialogue that are more expressive than said and tell. The final collaborative effort produces dialogues that the writers present to their classmates and post around the room. Strategies for differentiation are available.
