Uses of Dialogue with extracts from Harry Potter
Full lesson PowerPoint which goes through the reasons for using dialogue in your writing, the Golden Rules of dialogue. This leads on to the children reading the three extracts from Harry Potter (written out for you in the attached Word document) and a task sheet (again attached).

The pupils must: Identify characteristics of dialogue in the three extracts (why the dialogue is used e.g. does it reveal character relationships, move the story forward or build tension), explain how Rowling has showed this characteristic, find a quote and explain why Rowling may have chose this use of dialogue in the extract, e.g. at what point of the story is this dialogue occurring? WAGOLL (what a good one looks like) is also included in the PowerPoint.
