Elements of a Story THE STRUCTURE OF THE PLOT It is a plan that is used to organize the events in a story. Story Structure DEFINITION

The plot is the sequence of events that make up the story. It is the beginning, the middle, and the end of the story. A plot develops like

a roller coaster ride. Exposition This is usually called the introduction The author introduces: Setting

Characters Basic conflict INCITING INCIDENT This is the event that starts the problem in the story. In a ball game, this would happen when the first pitch is thrown out.

In the story Duffys Jacket, the families arrive at the cabin. In the story Priscilla and the Wimps, one of Klutters Kobras asks Melvin for a pass. Rising Action There are more

problems and complications in the story. In the story Duffys Jacket, think about everything that happens after the moms leave the house.

Sometimes, we say, The plot thickens. Climax This is the point of greatest suspense and highest interest. Sometimes it is the turning point in the

story. In some books or TV shows, this is the cliffhanger that ends the story. CLIMAX The climax is the event in the story

that the author has been building up to. It is like the grand finale at a fireworks show. Like the grand finale, the climax is near

the end of the story. Falling Action This part tells all of the action that occurs after the climax. It leads up to the ending of a story.

Resolution This is the final part of the story How is the conflict

resolved? The conflict ends BUT the problem is NOT always settled. In Duffys Jacket, Duffys jacket is returned, and he stops forgetting his things. BUT

We still dont know who returned the jacket. DIAGRAM OF PLOT STRUCTURE PLOT STRUCTURE ROLLER COASTER Elements of a Story
