Look at the punctuation in this:A man walked into a doctor’s surgery with an apple on his head.“What seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.“Well,” replied the apple, “I’ve got this growth on my bottom.”
notice the speech marks around what is actually said what seems to be the problem asked the doctor
Notice the speech marks around what is actually said.“What seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.
important there must always be some kind of punctuation before the second set of speech marks

IMPORTANT!There must always be some kind of punctuation before the second set of speech marks!

slide9
Let’s look at that joke again.A man walked into a doctor’s surgery with an apple on his head.“What seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.“Well,” replied the apple, “I’ve got this growth on my bottom.”
slide10
Look at the way the text is set out.A man walked into a doctor’s surgery with an apple on his head.“What seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.“Well,” replied the apple, “I’ve got this growth on my bottom.”
slide11
Can you see that each time someone new speaks you have to start a new line?A man walked into a doctor’s surgery with an apple on his head.“What seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.“Well,” replied the apple, “I’ve got this growth on my bottom.”
slide12
IMPORTANT!Remember that a new speaker starts a new line!(This is good news because it makes it look like you have written more on your page!)
slide13
Now look at who said the speech.A man walked into a doctor’s surgery with an apple on his head.“What seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.“Well,” replied the apple, “I’ve got this growth on my bottom.”
slide14
Notice that after a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark you don’t need to start with a capital letter.(Strange huh?)“What seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.
slide15
If, like this one, you have who said it in the middle of the speech, don’t forget to put in a comma before you start the speech again. “Well,” replied the apple, “I’ve got this growth on my bottom.”
slide16
Now it is your turn!Let’s look at another joke and see if we can put in the direct speech punctuation.
slide17
Knock, knock said Shanice Who’s there replied Dean Genoa giggled Shanice Genoa who? asked Dean Genoa good teacher laughed Shanice
slide19
Let’s start by putting in a new line for a new speaker. Knock, knock said Shanice Who’s there replied Dean Genoa giggled Shanice Genoa who? asked Dean Genoa good teacher laughed Shanice
slide20
Knock, knock said Shanice Who’s there replied Dean Genoa giggled Shanice Genoa who? asked Dean Genoa good teacher laughed Shanice
slide21
Great! It’s easier to read already!Knock, knock said Shanice Who’s there replied Dean Genoa giggled Shanice Genoa who? asked Dean Genoa good teacher laughed Shanice
slide22
Now let’s think about putting speech marks around what is actually said.Knock, knock said Shanice Who’s there replied Dean Genoa giggled Shanice Genoa who? asked Dean Genoa good teacher laughed Shanice
slide23
Now let’s think about putting speech marks around what is actually said.“Knock, knock” said Shanice “Who’s there” replied Dean “Genoa” giggled Shanice“Genoa who?” asked Dean “Genoa good teacher” laughed Shanice
slide24
The next stage is to make sure we have punctuation before we close the speech marks. “Knock, knock,” said Shanice “Who’s there?” replied Dean “Genoa,” giggled Shanice “Genoa who?” asked Dean “Genoa good teacher,” laughed Shanice
slide25
Lastly we need to make sure all our sentences have full stops at the end. “Knock, knock,” said Shanice.“Who’s there?” replied Dean. “Genoa,” giggled Shanice. “Genoa who?” asked Dean.“Genoa good teacher,” laughed Shanice.
