Getting students to see the parts of a well-written plot as a whole can be tough. These guides can help students examine each part of a plot and then assemble them to see how they work together. Works for analyzing literature as well as for designing their own story plots. Very adaptable. You can focus on one part of plot (like Crisis) over several stories and compare them. Groups can analyze one plot element and then the class can come together to assemble the whole thing. In addition, groups can all focus on one element and then compare their conclusions.
