Lesson four is about plot. What drives a plot and keeps the reader engaged? Students will learn basic plot structure, from inciting incident to climax, as well as tips for organizing everything in between. Then, they’ll draw plot charts for their own stories.
This unit is part of a multi-installment series on creative writing, but it can also stand alone. The writing exercises do assume that the students already have some idea of the story they wish to write. The idea doesn't have to be well developed, since the purpose of this lesson is to help them flesh it out. That said, if students need help coming up with ideas from scratch, I recommend Lesson Two: Freewriting and Idea Generation
