Transcript of Copy of Plot structure with The Three Little Pigs
How to use a plot diagram
The three little pigs set out to build houses for themselves in their new home, Piglet Village. The wolf sets out for an afternoon snack and comes upon three unsuspecting pigs. The wolf thinks that bacon would be a great snack.
Bob (pig 1) decides to build his house from straw. It takes him no more than five minutes, so he reads a book and has fun. The famished wolf comes and huffs and puffs and blows the house down so Bob scuttles off to Jeff's house.
Jeff (pig 2) builds his house out of sticks. It only takes Jeff half an hour to finish his house, so he played a video game and ate chips. The starving wolf won't have it. He blows the stick house down. Bob and Jeff waddle off to Stanley's house.
Stanley (pig 3) makes his house out of bricks. It took him nearly all day, and he didn't even have time for lunch. The wolf huffs and puffs while all the pigs rub their chinny chin chins.
No matter how hard the wolf puffs, he can't blow the house down.
The wolf leaves in frustration, and the pigs squeal with joy because Stanley's work pays off.
Bob, Jeff and Stanley learn an important lesson. Hard work is needed before relaxation. They live happily ever after.
Exposition or Introduction
Resolution or Denouement
The people or animals or ideas that are in the story
The personality and qualities of the characters and how we know those traits. Does the narrator tell us that someone is angry? Do we know that Joe is a jealous person through his actions? Do we find out about Billy's frustration through his thoughts?
Setting is the time, place and environment of the story. For example: early on a rainy Monday morning at the neighborhood dry cleaners.
Point of view is the perspective of who is telling the story. First person, Second person, Third person limited, Third person omniscient.
Theme is the overall message or lesson of the story. Some examples are love conquers all, never give up hope, always be truthful, etc.
Internal conflict is man vs. himself. This is an inward struggle that the character is having in their mind.
External conflict is when a character is having a struggle with an outside force beyond their control. There are three kinds.
1. man vs. man-another character is causing the conflict.
2. man vs. nature-the conflict comes from nature such as a tornado.
3. man vs. society-the conflict stems from the rules of society going against the characters desires or wishes.
Think of this as the breaking point of the conflict. Everything has been building to this point.
This is what happens as a result of the climax.
This is when all the loose ends are tied up and the story is complete. Another term for resolution is denouement (dar' ain't no more).
