Descriptive Writing: That's Your Cue!


In this lesson, students will work in groups to write a scene, incorporating dialogue with a purpose. Using events and custom sounds, they will program Cue to act out this scene with group members.


Students Will:

  • recognize the purposes of dialogue (e.g., to move a story forward, increase tension, illustrate a character’s personality).
  • write dialogue for a scene that achieves one of these purposes.
  • program Cue to say dialogue in an interactive scene.
  • use events to initiate Cue's dialogue.

Target Grades: 6 - 8
