By Sofia and Lauryn Plot and Conflict Plot! Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution Plot Vocabulary Conflict Categories Conflict: Internal and External Identifying Plot and Conflict Bye! What is plot, anyway?
Plot is the sequence of events in the story. Rising action is the series of events leading up to the climax, or the turning point in the story. The climax is the highest, most dramatic point in the story. Plot Device
Narrative Structure
Flashback Conflict often goes hand-in-hand with plot, which, as you know, is the sequence of events in a story. However, conflict means to come into collision with someone or something. Both conflict and plot make a story interesting. This Venn Diagram will help you understand the two main types of conflict: internal and external. man vs. man It helps to have practice at identifying plot and conflict. Hope you liked our presentation! Plot always follows a specific pattern: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. First, we'll discuss exposition. Exposition is the beginning of the plot. Exposition may also include foreshadowing (see foreshadowing). It's like the introduction to the story. Falling action is the series of events leading up to the resolution. The resolution is the ending point in the story in which all loose ends are tied up and where the conflict is resolved. This is Gustav Freytag's plot diagram. He was the first to separate plot into the 5 parts you see on the graph. He created a pyramid based on this information. Plot device is something or someone that exists only to assist the plot. Foreshadowing is a sign of something to come. Narrative structure is the framework of the story. A flashback is a scene in a story in which a character recalls a past event. Internal Conflict occurs inside a character External Conflict occurs with the character and some other force only one type: man vs. self many different types: man vs. man, man vs. nature, man vs. society, and many more! both are different types of conflict both require two or more opposing sides man vs. self man vs. nature man vs. society Man vs. man conflict means one character fighting against another. Man vs. nature conflict means one character fighting against the natural forces in nature. Man vs. self conflict, also known as internal conflict, means one character fighting against his/herself. Man vs. society means one character is struggling against a very large group of people, or, in some cases, everyone else in the story. Before we see how Kate and Julie are doing, we're going to complete a worksheet together. Next time you're reading something, be sure to try to identify where you are in the plot. This skill will help you later in life with reports and even your future job
