Plot Diagram

Total views: 3715
Summary:

The Plot Diagram is an organizational tool focusing on a pyramid or triangular shape, which is used to map the events in a story. This mapping of plot structure allows readers and writers to visualize the key features of stories.

The basic triangle-shaped plot structure, representing the beginning, middle, and end of a story, was described by Aristotle. Gustav Freytag modified Aristotle's system by adding a rising action and a falling action to the structure. This interactive version of the graphic organizer supports both Aristotle's and Freytag's conceptualizations of plot structures.

Excellent graphic to use in

Excellent graphic to use in so many grade levels! Thanks for creating the boxes so that students can work at the board or on tablets to input the information.

I LOVE this fiction

I LOVE this fiction template!! I have used it with my students for each short story we've read so far. It makes it easier for them to "see" how the story progresses and moves through each step. It's great!!
