Literary Elements: Plot

  • A plot, or underlying story structure, is found only in fiction.

  • A plot begins when a character has a problem or conflict.

  • The problem builds up during the rising action, is met directly at the climax, and comes to an end, as the action winds down, during the resolution.


Idioms

  • An idiom is a phrase or expression whose meaning cannot be understood from the ordinary meaning of the words that form it.

  • Context clues will sometimes help you figure out the meaning of an idiom.

  • Some idioms can be found in a dictionary by looking up a keyword contained in the idiom.


Context Text

  • Synonyms are words that mean the same or about the same.

  • Antonyms are words that are opposites.

  • A synonym or an antonym may appear as a context clue near an unfamiliar word.


Context Text

  • Reread the last paragraph on page 494 and look for a synonym for the word leaked.

  • Choose other story words, use a thesaurus to find a synonym and antonym for each word, and write sentences that include the story word and a synonym or antonym.
