3. Plot (definition) • Plot is the organized pattern or sequence of events that make up a story. Every plot is made up of a series of incidents that are related to one another.

4. Plot • Plot follows a sequence of beginning, middle, and end. • Think of the plot diagram as a road map guiding you through the story!

5. Plot • What would happen if we changed the order of plot? • What if the exposition was last and the resolution first?

6. 1. Exposition • This usually occurs at the beginning of a short story. Here the characters are introduced. We also learn about the setting of the story. Most importantly, we are introduced to the main conflict (main problem).

7. 2. Rising Action • This part of the story begins to develop the conflict(s). A building of interest or suspense occurs.

8. 3. Climax • This is the turning point of the story. Usually the main character comes face to face with a conflict. The main character will change in some way.

9. 4. Falling Action • All loose ends of the plot are tied up. The conflict(s) and climax are taken care of.

10. 5. Resolution • The story comes to a reasonable ending.
