Boost Narrative Writing- Teach Students How to Write Dialogue

As a classroom teacher, imaginative writing is often the most fun type of writing to teach. Students get to invent their characters, have them interact with each other, and go through some wild and crazy adventures. However, imaginative writing can be one of the most challenging to teach. After learning the parts of a story, students need to be taught how to write dialogue.

This presentation clearly explains the rules for

  • placing quotation marks (Note: This resource uses the double quotation mark rule for punctuating dialogue)
  • how commas and other punctuation marks work with dialogue,
  • when to use capitalisation in dialogue, 
  • how to write breaks in dialogue,
  • how to format dialogue in a story,
  • how to write two characters talking at once.

This presentation provides dialogue examples and dialogue rules and provides activities that allow students to apply the concepts.

Through this activity, students will show improvement in their ability to include and edit dialogue in their writing.
