Sharkboy Sings Writing Activity

Sharkboy Sings (Use this activity to supplement learning about the discourse of dialogue)

  • Have students turn off the speakers and watch the video clip.
  • Tell them to imagine what the people are saying or singing.
  • Have them use the dialogue discourse with quotes to write a short skit.
  • Have them post their skit in the comment box in a class blog or upload it to a class wiki for review. Afterwards they can listen to the video with audio and see what Sharkboy is singing about.
 Try it out yourself: post in the comment box a few sentences of dialogue.
