♥ Perfect! This was very straightforward and was easy to implement. I used this as a review while reading and my kids were actually excited to reach a new point on the chart! Great way to actively read!

High level analysis of plot. It was very comprehensive and aligns well with the CCSS. Thank you for providing possible answers. Not everyone will agree all the time, but it is nice to have an interpretation as a starting point for discussion. It adds value to the product! My learners worked in small groups using this chart. High-quality and very useful!

Visually appealing to students and perfect for meeting CCSS. This makes teaching plot structure a breeze! Have enjoyed several of these - they are great for students to use & follow along with story. Love the 'personalization' to these for each story.

♥ The guiding questions are excellent for students who need a little hint to help them correctly identify story elements. This looks great and love that there is enough room for student response! I love using this in the classroom and watching my students take ownership of their own materials!

♥ This has a very cool look to it and the proposed answer key adds a lot of value to the product. Makes plot charts motivating! I appreciate this download a lot. I can see using it as an addition to an end of unit test or as a review of the plot or a group assignment; it's very flexible!
