Teaching the dialogue of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Learning Intention / Overview

This activity will allow students to develop an understanding of dialogue.  Dialogue is what is being spoken by characters in a text.  Understanding who is speaking allows students to better understand the plot and/or events taking place in a story. A character’s dialogue is also important because it often sets or reflects the mood in the story.  This activity will also strengthen background knowledge for word choice in identifying signals for dialogue. (said, shouted, yelled, spoke, etc.)
