This lesson includes a PowerPoint presentation, notes and a plot chart worksheet that goes with the presentation. The PowerPoint and notes cover the basics of plot and how to determine plot from literature. This information is appropriate for grades 4-8. The PowerPoint also includes a Pixar movie that has clear plot delineation. The students, with the guidance of the teacher and the PowerPoint, will complete a plot chart based on the short film at the end of the lesson. This lesson is a great way to introduce plot quickly or to struggling learners before moving on to applying the concepts to complex text.
