5 How the Action Unfolds in a Story

6 Todays Standards LA plot structure Students will locate and analyze the elements of plot structure, including exposition, setting, character development, rising/falling action, conflict/resolution, and theme.

10 Out of Order? Once there was an evil queen, so jealous of her stepchilds beauty that she ordered the girl killed.

11 Out of Order? If the events in a story are told out of order, they dont make sense. Every story follows a pattern, a specific sequence of events. In elementary school, you probably learned that the usual story sequence is: beginning, middle, and end.

12 Sequence of Events BEGINNING MIDDLE END END

13 Sequence of Events plot A more sophisticated way to discuss how events occur in a story is to talk about the storys plot. Copy this definition : Plot Plot – The series of events in a story.

14 Stages of a Plot Think of plot structure as a mountain.

15 Stages of a Plot plot diagram Most plots have five stages, detailed in the plot diagram below. Exposition Rising Action Climax Falling Action Resolution

16 Copy this definition : Exposition Exposition – introduces the storys characters, setting, and basic situation. Stages of Plot Exposition

17 Stages of Plot Exposition Rising Action Copy this definition : Rising Action Rising Action – events that develop and build the conflict; increase reader interest.

18 Stages of Plot Exposition Rising Action Climax Copy this definition : Climax Climax – the turning point; where tension is the greatest

19 Stages of a Plot Exposition Rising Action Climax Falling Action Copy this definition : Falling Action Falling Action – events that result from the decision or action of the climax

20 Stages of a Plot Exposition Rising Action Climax Falling Action Resolution Copy this definition : Resolution Resolution – the final outcome in the story …And they lived happily ever after.

21 Guided Practice Once upon a time there was a frog. One day when he was sitting on his lily pad, he saw a beautiful princess sitting by the pond.

22 Guided Practice The princess was about to jump up and run, but she felt sorry for the frog with the sad and pathetic voice. She asked, What can I do to help you little frog?

Resolution: Frog gets on with life, while the princess deals with kissing him. Conflict: The frog says he needs help.

33 Group Practice As you read the grasshopper story, look for important events and action. Find three important events and write each one down on a sticky note. (You may summarize it, retell it briefly in your own words.) Working with your table group, arrange all of your sticky notes in a plot diagram. Be sure you have at least one note for each of the five parts of plot: Exposition, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution.

34 Individual Assignment Read The School Play by Gary Soto (page 24). Identify its parts of plot. Create a plot diagram like the ones we working on together in class. If you need help, look at the example and definitions on pages
