Plot Chart Elements

  • Falling Action: conflict in the story begins to unravel, right before the ending. Story begins to be solved.

  • Resolution: conflicts are resolved in the story, creating an ending for both the characters and the reader

“Toto, I don’t know what to do now that the story resolved itself!”



  • Where the story takes place

  • The historical moment in time

  • The geographical location

  • Cultural/societal context clues

“IDK Bob, IUBB in 2012 at Assembly Hall is pretty sweet.”

“There was no better place than Assembly Hall for IU basketball in the 1970’s and 80’s!!”

Lesson 3


  • Mood is the emotional quality of a literary work.

  • A writer’s choice of language, subject matter, setting, tone, and sound devices like rhyme and rhythm all help create the mood.

  • Mood evokes emotion.

Lesson 3


  • What would be the mood for the following movies as examples?



  • The contrast between appearance an reality; what is expected and what actually happens

Point of view

Point of View

  • From whose point the story is told

  • 1st person: the “I” form

  • 2nd person: very rare; the “you” form

  • 3rd person limited: narrator reveals observations of only one character; he or she

  • 3rd person omniscient: narrator reveals observations about everything; all knowing

  • What point of view have our stories been told in so far?



  • The methods a writer uses to reveal the personality of a character


  • Indirect Characterization: the writer reveals a character through that individual’s words, thoughts and actions and through what other characters think and say

  • Direct Characterization: the writer makes

    explicit statements about a character

Lesson 3


  • A reflection of the attitude a writer takes toward his or her subject matter

  • Communicated through words and details that express particular emotions

  • Examples: sadness, lightheartedness, respect

  • As we read, look at what the language suggests the tone is!
