Motivating Dialogue

Found in; creative writing; motivating students

To motivate my students to write dialogue, I use old calendar pictures of puppies, kittens and other animals which I've backed and laminated. Most of the pictures are pairs of animals. I let the students work with a partner and write a dialogue to match the picture that they receive. They really enjoy pretending they are that animal and come up with some clever lines. We orally share their work and make up a bulletin board for all to enjoy.
