Word Choice in Writing by ECSDM
The purpose of this lesson is to help students choose better words when they are writing dialogue. I introduce this lesson in writing remediation lab after the Language Arts teacher has presented this skill to the entire class.
Students have a tendency to overuse the word “said” when writing a conversation. This activity helps them find more descriptive and interesting words to use instead of repeating “said.”
