"Fish Cheeks" Plot Line
Lesson 10 of 16
Objective: SWBAT demonstrate their understanding of an author using logical structure to organize a text.
Create a Plot Line
I reminded students that over the past few days, we discussed the development of the narrative using an effective hook, transitions, imagery, and finally leading to a theme which they could apply to their own life. Today they would be focusing upon specific events introduced throughout the plot line and identify each event’s function in the creation of the narrative.
The students’ instruction was to create a plot line labeling – exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. In addition they included illustrations that exemplify the imagery crafted in their minds as they read “Fish Cheeks.”
