Teacher will then ask the student to highlight a sentence that is surrounded by quotation marks. Next teacher will ask student to tell who is speaking in the highlighted sentence of dialogue. Teacher will then ask the student to read chapter three independently.
      2. Independent Practice: Student will read chapter three. He will receive assistance with difficult words when necessary. Teacher will ask the student to highlight all of the dialogue within the chapter. Student will then identify which character is saying what. Teacher will then ask student to write a four-lined dialogue. Teacher will make any necessary corrections and then ask the student to copy the dialogue on the chart paper with the markers. Student will glue the dried macaroni on the chart paper around the dialogue to represent quotation marks.
    3. Accomodation/Adaption- For student X, teacher will listen to the student read the instructionally appropriate text and assist student when necessary. Student will carefully highlight dialogue and receive extensive practice with dialogue and quotation marks.
    4. Evaluation/Testing/Procedure for Collecting Formative and Summative Evaluation-
