Announcements

Opening Activity
Look at the passage at the top of the page and write down three rules about dialogue that you might know based on that passage.

DIRECTIONS

Fill in the notes as you go!!

1. WHAT ARE THE RULES FOR DIALOGUE?


He said, If you gentlemen would give me a little room, I got some work to do
If you are beginning to give some dialogue and start off with the character and verb (He, said) you will put the comma first, then put the quotation marks and dialogue.

1. WHAT ARE THE RULES FOR DIALOGUE?


He said, If you gentlemen would give me a little room, I got some work to do.
When you finish your dialogue, your end punctuation will always go inside the last quotation marks.

2. WHAT ARE THE RULES FOR DIALOGUE?


Dont you see how you can do what dynamite couldnt, said the boss of the crew.

If you put the character and verb (boss, said) at the end of the sentence, you put your comma INSIDE the quotation marks.

3. WHY SHOULD YOU USE DIALOGUE??


Dialogue helps break up a paragraph and your narration.
Creates interest and helps develop your characters and action.
I know you may not remember every word exactly the way it was said, but you can still create some dialogue that matches your event.

4. ANOTHER RULE
You have to create a new paragraph or line for dialogue when you are writing a conversation. Never put a ton of dialogue in one paragraph! See samples on the next slide

4. EXAMPLESPLITTING UP DIALOGUE
BAD I tripped hard in the hallway, books and all. What happened? Betty said. I fell. Ugh. I said sheepishly. Betty helped me up. Did anyone see? I asked. I looked around and already knew my answer. People were staring, pointing, and giggling. WHY? Because the dialogue is all in one paragraph and it gets too messy and crowdedit does not flow well. GOOD: I tripped hard in the hallway, books and all. What happened? Betty said. I fell. Ugh. I said sheepishly. Betty helped me up. Did anyone see? I asked. I looked around and already knew my answer. People were staring, pointing, and giggling. WHY? Now the dialogue has its own lines and it flows smoothly!

REVISIONS
Later on you will need to look at how you use dialogue in your narrative.
Do you use any dialogue? Add it! Do you use proper dialogue punctuation? Fix It! Make sure it is not all in one paragraph! Make it line by line!
