Session Three

  1. Using definitions from your class literature textbook or the Literary Vocabulary site, review the following literary terms: character, climax, conflict, exposition, plot, resolution, and setting.
  2. Have students reconstruct the story that they read in the previous session using the Literary Elements Map and Plot Diagram tools. These tools require student application of the reviewed literary elements to the covered text. Make sure students print their work before closing the tools.
  3. Place students in small groups of 2–4 members, and allow students to compare their Literary Elements Map and Plot Diagram.
