This is a fun way to teach or review the elements of the narrative. I use this Novel/Short Story Study before I start a novel or short story unit. I also make handouts from pages 1-2 for students to keep to study from. You choose students as the characters of a story you create during class. I've given an excellent summary of the elements, a graphic to be drawn on the board, and directions as to how to start as well as a plot to follow and proceed with the story.
