Plot Elements: 9/6/11

We reviewed the elements of Freitag's Triangle of Plot in class today, just to make sure that everyone was on the same page and using the same terminology.

1.  Exposition
2.  Rising Action
3.  Climax (or "Turning Point")
4.  Falling Action
5.  Resolution (Denouement)

We then read Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss, and students were given a handout asking them to summarize the story then identify which parts of the story fall under each plot element.

This handout is due on Thursday.

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day :-)!
