A plot diagram that students will actually have enough room to fully write on! The first time I had students fill out a plot diagram, I realized I had made an awful mistake by giving them an entire diagram on one piece of paper. This left them with barely any room to write in details.
Breaking down a plot is one of the best ways to get a full understanding of the story line itself. This also forces students to think cause and effect and to think chronologically.
This resource breaks down the plot diagram into 5 sections (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution). Each section is on its own separate sheet of paper so students have plenty of room to write down all of the details necessary.
Students move around the room to different stations which also keeps them engaged, interested, and focused.
This is just a new twist on an old idea!
