This power point and handout is a great resource for any students needing to learn what plot line is in a narrative.
This power point details what plot line is, why it is important to know, and it breaks down each part of the plot line in detail so that students get a clear understanding of how stories fit into overall dramatic structure. This power point goes in depth into:
The power point includes what the students will be learning as well as exit ticket directions at the end.
Lots of visuals, examples, and detailed explanation!
At the end of the lesson the power point also includes an example for the students to see how a common story fits in to a plot line, it gives the class a chance to practice putting a story into a plot line together, and finally gives directions on how students can practice putting a story into a plot line on their own.
To go along with the power point I also included a document that can be used as a handout for students to take notes on during the power point (with answers for the teacher). On this document I also included the directions and breakdown for the practice plot line that students will be doing as an activity at the end of the power point. Both documents are available with this purchase.
This would be perfect for direct instruction to a class of what plot line is or would be a great review/refresher before writing a narrative or reading a novel and identifying each part of the story line.
