I have created a seven minute video explaining the five parts of a plot: exposition, rising action, turning point/climax, falling action, and resolution/denouement. I go over the terms and create an animated story to illustrate each section. I am also including the PowerPoint in this download in case you would prefer to narrate the lesson yourself. The student notes are an outline of the lecture with blanks for the students to fill in as they follow along.

I use videos for my flipped classroom. Students view a video lecture and fill in their notes for homework. With the passive learning out of the way, students come to class ready to actively engage with and apply the concepts. This also gives us more class time to work collaboratively with one another. Videos are also great for tutorials or remedial work. Need to be out for the day? Leave a video lesson for your substitute.
