Product Description
This step by step process will help students write a flash fiction or short story plot. This walks through the elements of completing a story by first starting with a character, then creating conflict, resolution, and THEN going back and doing exposition, rising and falling actions.

I found that starting with character and conflict is easier for most students because the character (and potential conflicts) are easier to think of. It is more logical for a student to think in this order, rather than trying to fill in a plot diagram from one point to the next point.

This is just how I teach the plot to my own students. Students using this planning process should already have a decent understanding of plot, however. So I tend to use this with 8th and 9th graders.
