DIALOGUE

DIALOGUE

Overview

Students program a conversation between two characters to explore the role of dialogue in storytelling.


Examples


Learning Objectives

  • Use looks blocks (like “say”) and wait blocks to construct a dialogue between two characters (sprites).
  • Use sound blocks (like “play sound until done”) to trigger a series of code.
  • Add events blocks (like “broadcast”) to sequence the story.
  • Use looks blocks (like “switch costume to“ and “switch backdrop to”) to personalize their story.

Computer Science Topics Covered

  • Parallelism: The process of events happening at the same time, either independently or interdependently.
  • Debugging: The process of identifying and fixing error(s) in a program when it is not functioning as expected.
  • Control structures: Sections of code that order the direction or flow of how a program functions. The control structure in this lesson is focused on loops.
