Transcript

  • 1.  Characteristics of Good  Narration
  • 2. PLOT the sequence of events that take place in a story
  • 3. SETTING the time and place in which the events of a story take place
  • 4. CHARACTERIZATION the methods used to present the personality of a character in a narrative Direct: the author describes the character Indirect: the reader judges what the character is like based on what they say or do, or what other characters say about them.
  • 5. ATMOSPHERE the general mood or feeling established in a piece of literature (created through word choice and pacing) Word Choice: the author uses words that make the reader feel a certain way Pacing: the author controls the speed at which we read through sentence length, punctuation, repetition of words and other techniques.
  • 6. POINT OF VIEW who is narrating the story First person: the narrator uses "I" to tell the action, and is involved in the story Third person: the story is told from a perspective outside the story (characters are referred to by name, or as “he”, “she”, “they”)
  • 7. CONFLICT  the central problem that drives the action of a story Internal: The conflict happens in a character's mind External: The conflict happens between characters, or between a character and some outside force, like nature.
