Plot The events that occur in a story make up the plot, or story line. Most fictional works contain five elements (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.)
Exposition This gives the reader important information about the setting, the characters, and the conflict at the begining of the story.
Setting The time and place of the story
Main Characters the characters important to the plot
Conflict the problem in the story
Rising action A story begins with a series of events that happen to a character that create the conflicts. The rising action leads up to the climax.
Initiating event This is when a problem or conflict triggers the action in the story.
Climax The rising action leads up to a climax when there is much action, with sometimes a surprising turn, and becomes the turning point of the story.
Falling Action The falling action are the events that happen after the climax when the characters solve the problems caused by the conflicts. The reader knows how the story will end.
Resolution A synonym for this word is denoument. The conflict is resolved and the loose ends are tied up. The reader has a sense of closure at the end of the story. Clue: the word "solution" is within resolution
Theme After reading the story, reflect about the message or lesson can be learned from it.
