Scripts and Dialogues
DIALOGUES ARE part of the tradition of philosophical writing and, within the frame of a dialogue, writers can also include stories, poems, myths and all kinds of other genres. Dialogues can be elaborate or very simple but the best dialogues are exploratory rather than didactic — its best not to give one character all the strongest arguments.
Scripts, either specially written or created from stories, can make powerful stimuli that involve pupils making meaning through reading aloud.
