In teaching my students about brainstorming for writing their original stories, I decided to create some graphic organizers to help them. Included in this file are six simple graphic organizers for the students to organize the plot, characters, and setting in their stories.
-1 graphic organizer has students draw the characters, setting and plot (broken into problem and solution
-1 graphic organizer for students to write the title, characters + traits, setting, and plot (broken into beginning, middle, and end)
-1 character map
-1 character analysis for students to give character traits, show characters as they change through the story, and show what the character does
-1 organizer for students to draw the beginning, middle, and end of the story
-1 organizer for students to draw the setting.
I hope these help you in teaching your students to write stories or analyze story elements in their reading books.
