Dialogue Component

USE A BLUE PEN WHEN MARKING ON THIS CHART OR ON YOUR PARTNER’S ESSAY

Yes

No

Needs Improvement –Explain what needs to be done

Does your partner’s essay include EITHER dialogue OR his/her thoughts?










Does the dialogue add to the overall message or effect of the story?










Is the dialogue formatted correctly?

  • Commas and periods always INSIDE the quotation marks?

  • Quotation marks facing the correct direction?

  • New paragraph for each time a different speaker talks?

  • Commas and periods used correctly to set off the quotation from the tag/reference to the speaker depending on what is before the tag? See example:

“French toast is my favorite breakfast food,” said Betty. “I could eat it every day.”

“Well, I love pancakes,” said Shirley, “especially with blueberries.”












Does the dialogue sound realistic? (using slang and “writing” with an accent/dialect is effective when writing dialogue because it makes the speaker seem more realistic and natural)










Are the author’s thoughts italicized?










When including his/her thoughts, does the author include the phrase “I thought” or at least hint at the fact that he/she is thinking (like, “breaking my train of thought”)?










Are the thoughts themselves written in present tense?
I am so hungry right now, I thought to myself.










Mark a BLUE star where he/she may need to add dialogue or thoughts.

No

Needs Improvement—explain what needs to be done

Does your partner’s essay include a message or a life lesson (whether stated directly or implied)?










Do the events of the story point to the overall message (like road signs point you to your destination)?










Is the message clear?











Is the overall message bigger and broader than just the event described in the narrative? (For example, “Work really hard at baseball” is a message, but it is too narrow and focused on the event. “Hard work pays off” is broader than a single event, but still applies to a single event).









Draw a GREEN arrow next to sections of the story that could include a clear hint at the overall message.
