Chase, Cheryl M.; Marler, Joyce
This booklet is one of a series developed by the Northern Colorado Educational Board of Cooperative Services to make available to teachers ideas designed and tested by other teachers. Many of the ideas are from educational journals as well as from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). The booklet is divided into eight sections: description, character, plot, dialogue, mood, point of view, humor, and bibliography. Each of the first seven sections contains from ten to fifteen activities with the purposes of the activities explained. Some of the objectives of the activities are to avoid cliches, learn point of view, analyze characters, understand character through phraseology, build plot from theme, build plot from situation, write realistic dialogue, experiment with dialogue, create mood, interpret mood, develop persuasive writing, develop humor, and understand satire.
