This is an activity that I use every year as a refresher before I introduce my students to writing their first literary analysis. Not only does this activity help students practice identifying the different components of plot,but they also get to read the awesome short story "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell!
Part 1- Read and discuss the article defining "Plot in Literature"
Part 2- Read "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell and have students mark the text for the different components of plot (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution, and any unexpected turns)
Part 3- Fill out plot map using the information highlighted or marked during reading.
Part 4- Answer the questions in the chart. ____________________________________________________________________________
