Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Little Red's Story Elements - Section 1: Frayer Models


In previous lessons I realized that story element vocabulary was not being used when summarizing or explaining stories student's had read. They had the basics of setting and main character but really did not move past these two elements when explaining a literature selection.In order to summarize and explain the theme of a story student's need to have a better understanding of the elements that make up literature. This would include using the vocabulary and explaining words like plot, setting (as time), complications, protagonist, and antagonist. The development of this lesson was to introduce these new vocabulary words and put them into practice.
