Understanding and analyzing the plot structure of a story or book can be a daunting task for some.
This graphic organizer presents the three concepts of Exposition, Climax, and Resolution using a traffic light and simple 3 letter acronym: "XCR"
X=Exposition, Green Light
C=Climax, Yellow Light
R=Resolution, Red Light
Simple images and an easy acronym to remember will get students interested and engaged in diagraming plot structure.
Great in conjunction with Reader's Workshop Mini-Lessons.
