Students will fill out a blank plot map using a piece of text, correctly noting exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.
This tutorial will show students the components of a Plot Map and how to properly fill one out. It will also allow students to practice what they've learned by watching short video clips and reading short stories.
