DO NOW: Answer the following questions in your notebooks (project on overhead). In addition to realism, the author has created a specific atmosphere. What mood do you think the author is trying to create in the opening of this story? Do Rainsford and Whitney know each other? Are they friends? Peers? What do we know about them and their relationship from their initial conversation?

Discuss use of dashes at end of lines as method of creating more realistic sounding speech in which speakers cut each other off, interrupt, answer quickly. Does it work? Write a dialogue for these two characters (share a sheet with someone).

DIALOGUE To be effective in fiction, dialogue must serve more than one purpose. Characterization, plot advancement, revelation of emotional states, advancing imagery, providing movement to story, marking a timeline and introducing conflicts to

be solved are just a few objectives. Atmosphere Listen to the following clips of music. In the spaces provided on your worksheet write down the feelings you have when you hear the different types of music.
