Mentor text… “You got it,” Chuck replied, his voice chipper, as if thrilled to be needed. “But first we should get you some food from Frypan.” “I don’t know if I can ever eat again.” Not after what he’d just seen. Chuck nodded. “Yeah, you will. I’ll meet you at the same tree as before. Ten minutes.” -- Maze Runner “Rubeus! Rubeus Hagrid! How nice to see you again….

Dialogue tags Phrases used to explain who is speaking and how they are speaking. – “No, no, no!” my dad exclaimed, then pulled her up by the arm. – The tag is “my dad exclaimed”
Dialogue checklist Use a variety of dialogue “tags” to help show the emotion or attitude of the speaker in a vivid and descriptive way. Use quotation marks around the works that are spoken Place punctuation marks inside the closing quotation marks. Capitalize the first word of the quote Indent every time the speaker changes (new paragraph) If the speakers words come before the dialogue tag, place a comma at the end of the speakers words, inside the quotation marks When the dialogue tag appears in the body of the sentence and the quotation ends the sentence, place the final punctuation at the end of the quotation, within the quotation marks.
