PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This presentation introduces students to the concept of a plot diagram, comparing a story to a mountain. After explaining the significance of literary conflict, this lesson provides a basic, easy-to-follow explanation of several technical literary terms, including:

-Conflict
-Exposition (setting and characters)
-Rising action
-Climax (turning point)
-Falling action
-Resolution

The plot diagram used in this presentation is designed to illustrate that the rising action of a narrative often seems like the proverbial "one step forward, two steps back." Therefore the rising action line is choppy, not smooth.

The presentation ends with directions for students to practice and apply their understanding, inviting them to create a plot diagram that represents any current novel they are reading.
