A graphic organizer I have designed to use with my students when analyzing the elements and features of a short story:
* characters (primary and secondary)
* point of view - first person, third-person limited or omniscient
* setting features - time, place, mood, atmosphere
* plot features
* central problem or primary conflict (and type e.g. character vs. character)
* falling action
* theme or central lesson
** an additional section for student reflection on the story
A very helpful resource in helping students to analyze and deconstruct any short story or narrative.
Short Story PowerPoint Presentation also available.
