Narratives have a lot of elements that help propel the story and intrigue the audience. Imagery, setting, characters, and action are all elements that are extremely important to narrative storytelling. However, dialogue is perhaps one of the most important, since we can tell a lot about a character from the words the choose to express themselves, when they decide to communicate, and what they do not share with other characters. Understanding dialogue is a key part in interpreting narratives.

During the lesson, the student will be able to:

  • recognize when the pace of the story or drama change;
  • explain how an event or dialogue changes the pace of the story or drama;
  • determine why a character makes a particular decision.
