This PPT file serves to teach plot components. The file includes all 6 areas of plots and elements of each as tested on the Tennessee State English End-of-Course tests. Also included are two tasks for assessing student mastery before moving on to applying and analyzing plot within texts: creating a plot map and writing a super short story. Both tasks come with steps to get students started AND a sample of the completed expectation. This lesson was designed to take a full 100-minute block. Objectives are outlined on the PPT.
