  • 5. So lets see how all these ideas are connected.
  • 6. FIRST you should know that writing can be put into two categories based on what they have in common…
  • 7. “Factual” or composed of real information.
    Is written about people, places, or events that take place in real life.
    Can be used for practical purposes.
    “Make Believe” or made-up stories.
    It did not really happen.
    Usually used for entertainment.
    Here are the categories.
    FICTION is writing that is..
    NONFICTION is writing that is…
  • 8. Novels and other books that are fun are FICTIONAL,Newspapers, which give information about the real world are NONFICTIONAL.Can you think of other examples?
  • 9. Now then, literature in these two categories can be divided in to GENRES
    Genres are categories based on things that different writing has in common. Here are some examples:
    Novels
    Short Stories
    Fantasy
    Science Fiction
    Historical
    Mystery
    Thriller
    Crime
  • 10. Genres are determined by how similar one PLOT might be to another…
  • 11. Remember these PLOT Components??
    Climax: the turning point, the most intense moment—either mentally or in action
    Rising Action: the series of conflicts and crisis in the story that lead to the climax
    Falling Action: all of the action which follows the climax
    Exposition: the start of the story, the situation before the action starts
    Resolution: the conclusion, the tying together of all of the threads
  • 12. You might not, so lets break it down again…
  • 13. The time and place of the story is the setting
  • 14. Setting
    If you could talk about the where and when of a story, what you’re really talking about is the story’s setting.
    Understanding a story’s setting can help explain the rest of the plot.
  • 15. The point of view is the perspective of the story.
    “I was framed! I just wanted to borrow a cup of sugar!”
    “That rotten wolf tried to eat us!!!!”
  • 16. The people in the story are characters. Every story needs characters
    People
    Animals
    Or Creatures
  • 17. The protagonist is the “good guy” or positive force.
  • 18. The antagonist is the “bad guy” or negative force that gets in the good guy’s way.
  • 19. Protagonists and antagonists have different MOTIVES for their actions.
    These differences CAUSE tension between characters.
    The EFFECT of this tension is a CONFLICT.
    Just like real people, characters have reasons for doing what they do.
  • 20. Plot: Conflict
    Conflict is the dramatic struggle between two forces in a story. Without conflict, there is no plot.
  • 21. Great stories have great conflicts.
    Man vs. Man
    Man vs. Nature
    Man vs. Society
    Man vs. Machine
    Man vs. Himself
  • 22. The climax is the most exciting part! It is the turning point of the story.
  • 23. After you read…
    Hopefully you will have learned something.
    What you learned is called a THEME.
    You will need to guess what the theme is from the title, point of view, setting, characters, and plot events.
    Stories often have many themes.
    A few stories have one specific theme called a MORAL.
  • 24. Like in the Tortoise and the Hare:
    “Slow and steady wins the race.”
