    • Literary Analysis: Plot and ForeshadowingA plot is the sequence of related events in a story. A typical plot revolves arounda conflict—a struggle between opposing forces—and follows a pattern like theone shown in the diagram below. Elements of plot include the following: • Exposition: background on the characters and situation • Rising action: events that intensify the conflict • Climax: highest point of story tension at which outcome of conflict is revealed • Falling action: events following climax • Resolution: remaining issues resolved; conclusions or insights revealed by narrator Writers use various techniques to add tension to a story. One technique isforeshadowing—giving details that hint at upcoming events.To provide background on characters and their experiences, some authors useflashback, an interruption in the plot to describe an action of the past. After theflashback, the story returns to the present time of the action.
    • Using the Strategy: Plot DiagramUse a diagram like the one here to help you track the plot of the story.

You can check your predictions as you read. • Revise, or adjust, your predictions as you gather more information. • Verify, or confirm, predictions by comparing the outcome you predicted to the actual outcome. To help you make, verify, and revise predictions, ask questions such as “Whydid that happen?” and “What will be the result?”Using the Strategy: Prediction ChartRecord your questions on a prediction chart like this one.

    • Literary Analysis: Author’s PerspectiveThe author’s perspective in a literary work includes the judgments, attitudes,and experiences the author brings to the subject. An author’s perspectivedetermines which details he or she includes, as in these examples: • A writer with firsthand experience of an event might report his or her own reactions as well as generally known facts. • A writer with a positive view of a subject may emphasize its benefits. A work may combine several perspectives. For example, a writer may tell whatit felt like to live through an event. In addition, the writer may express his or herpresent views of the experience. As you read, look for details that suggest theauthor’s perspective.
