Scripting dialogues between teacher and student is a strategy used to intentionally teach the integration of written and spoken language. Scripted dialogues are used in a variety of contexts, and are especially helpful when students are practicing phonics, word recognition, and spelling.
Part 1: Scripting Dialogues Table
Using the “Scripting Dialogues Table” with the “Birthday Soup” excerpt, create teacher‐student dialogues specific to using single‐letter and consonant digraphs, short vowel and long vowel sounds, and appropriate use of word building and word building‐spelling. Review the examples in your text as a guide.
Part 2: Rationale
In a 250‐500 word rationale, summarize how each dialogue is effective and developmentally appropriate for teaching phonics, word recognition, and spelling.
Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.
