Breaking up direct speech with dialogue tags and introducing additional speakers

In this lesson, we will develop our knowledge of how to insert dialogue tags into the middle of a line of direct speech. We will also learn how to introduce additional speakers, using the correct punctuation. We will then apply that knowledge in a piece of creative writing inspired by two images.

This quiz includes images that don't have any alt text - please contact your teacher who should be able to help you with an audio description.
