Do you have a curriculum?

First, stick with your curriculum at the beginning.

Things fifth graders tend to need:

Beginning, middle, end focus (They often fizzle out at the end.)
Can use a traditional story map for planning.
Get them to focus on a few key events, or narratives become "and then, and then, and then."

Yes, they should indent every time there is a speaker change. I also emphasize that they only use dialog in a few key instances where it's the best way to show what's happening.
