  • What does this mean?

  • TEK 6.6


Today s learning goal
Today’s learning goal

  • We are going to be creating a flip book in order to help us summarize the elements of plot development. TEK 6.6A

  • These elements include: exposition, rising action, climax (turning point), falling action and resolution (denouement).

  • Not sure what these are? That’s ok! We will learn them together!


Plot

  • What is plot?

    • Any ideas? Raise your hand!

  • Plot is the sequence of events, cause/effect, conflict and relationships that exist in a story.

    • In other words, it’s the storyline.


Plot

A plot will consist of these 5 main elements:

  • Exposition

  • Rising Action

  • Climax or Turning Point

  • Falling Action

  • Resolution or Denouement

  • We organize and visualize these elements using a plot map.


Plot map
Plot Map

  • It will look like this:


Exposition
Exposition

  • Every story must have a beginning. The start, or exposition, is where the characters and setting are introduced.

  • During this part of the story, the conflict or main problem is also introduced

  • This includes the “where, who and what” of the story.


Rising action
Rising Action

  • This includes at least 5 major events that lead up to the climax of the story.

  • Remember, these are events that help make a difference in the story. That’s what helps to make them “major events”.


Climax or turning point
Climax orTurning Point

  • This is the “high point” in the story and usually involves a physical conflict or intense, emotional struggle.

  • It is the main event or danger that the character faces. This is the darkest moment, the worst challenge the character must oppose.

  • At this point it looks as if the character will fail, and will never get what he/she wants.


Falling action
Falling action

  • Following the climax, the story begins to slowly wind down. Falling action shows the result(s) of the actions or decisions the character has made.

  • This is where the story comes to a close.


Resolution or denouement
ResolutionORDenouement

  • The resolution, also often called denouement, which is French for "to untie" or "unraveling", is the conclusion of the story.

  • Here, the conflicts are resolved, all loose ends are tied up, and the story concludes with either a happy or sad ending.
