Parts of a Story
Product Description
How do I do it?
Compare stories read across time using a chart with headings: title, author, characters, setting, problem, and solution. The rows of the chart can be filled out whole class post-reading or post-viewing a video. After the chart has 2 stories listed, then start comparing story elements between different stories. Ask students questions like, “What setting is your favorite?” “Which problem is most like real life?” etc.

Variations & Extensions:
Students can have an individual chart that they fill out as the class chart is filled out. The story element chart can also be used as a daily reading log chart. Make space for students to use words and pictures. Have individuals tell stories about their lives and include those stories on the same or a non-fiction different “Our Lives” chart. Ask students to discuss and write about how stories would change if they swapped settings, characters, problems, or solutions etc.
