Elements 
of a 
Story 
Ms. Walsh
Elements of a Story: 
• Setting – The time and place a story takes place. 
• Characters – the people, animals or creatures in a story. 
• Plot – the series of events that make up a story. 
• Conflict – a problem or struggle between two people, things or ideas. 
Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
Setting 
Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
Setting 
Details can describe: 
Time of day 
Time of year 
Time in History 
Scenery 
Weather 
Location 
• The setting describes where 
an when the story takes place. 
• It helps build background and 
create images in the mind. 
• It helps set the tone or mood 
of the story. 
Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
Using the Five Senses 
• A good setting helps 
the reader visualize 
the places in the 
story. 
• A good author 
includes 
descriptions of the 
setting using the 
five senses… 
• SIGHT 
• SMELL 
• TASTE 
• FEEL 
• SOUND 
Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
Take a Look…Which is better? 
The castle 
was beside 
the water. 
OR… 
The waves crashed loudly against the shoreline. The 
fog lifted lightly and the medieval castle came into 
view. It was a beautiful site! The fog brushed my 
face and I could smell the smoke from the fire in the 
distance and taste the sea salt on my lips. Walsh Publishing Co. 2009

Elements of a story powerpoint

  • 1. Elements of a Story Ms. Walsh
  • 2. Elements of a Story: • Setting – The time and place a story takes place. • Characters – the people, animals or creatures in a story. • Plot – the series of events that make up a story. • Conflict – a problem or struggle between two people, things or ideas. Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
  • 4. Setting Details can describe: Time of day Time of year Time in History Scenery Weather Location • The setting describes where an when the story takes place. • It helps build background and create images in the mind. • It helps set the tone or mood of the story. Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
  • 5. Using the Five Senses • A good setting helps the reader visualize the places in the story. • A good author includes descriptions of the setting using the five senses… • SIGHT • SMELL • TASTE • FEEL • SOUND Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
  • 6. Take a Look…Which is better? The castle was beside the water. OR… The waves crashed loudly against the shoreline. The fog lifted lightly and the medieval castle came into view. It was a beautiful site! The fog brushed my face and I could smell the smoke from the fire in the distance and taste the sea salt on my lips. Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
  • 7. Your Turn… • On the next slide, there is a picture of a setting. • In your own words, write a detailed description of the setting in your picture. Include many adjectives and don’t forget to include descriptions for each of the five senses: see, hear, feel, smell, taste • Extension: Draw your own setting and then write about it. • Extension: Your teacher will give you a magazine to look through. Find a picture that could be a setting for a story. Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
  • 10. Every story needs Characters… People Animals Or Creatures Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
  • 11. The protagonist is the “good guy”
  • 12. The antagonist is the “bad guy” or force
  • 13. Characterization Characterization is the way in which an author shows the personality of a character Characterization is a technique writers use to make characters “come to life.” Walsh Publishing Co. 2009
  • 14. Think about your favorite book, movie or TV character… • How can you describe his/her appearance? • What kind of personality does he/she have? • What kinds of things does he/she like? • Make a list of character traits for this character.
  • 15. Characterization Characters are people or animals in a story. A writer can tell you directly about a character… (Freddy was very competitive) Or A writer can tell you indirectly about a character… (Two days before the game, Freddy gathered his teammates and laid out his plan. Then he looked at them and said, “We are going to win this one. No excuses.”)
  • 16. Direct Characterization • Direct Characterization tells the reader the personality of the character. • Direct Characterization is obvious to the reader and “spells” it right out. • “The patient boy and the quiet girl were both well behaved and did not disobey their mother.
  • 17. Indirect Characterization • Indirect Characterization shows things that reveal the personality of the character. • Speech • Thought • Effect on Others • Actions • Looks The boy sat next to his sister as she poked him and teased him. He did not react. He carefully picked up her doll from the floor and placed it on her lap saying gently, “Here you go, why don’t you play with your doll?”
  • 18. Indirect ☻WhatC doehs thae crhaaracctert saey? r Hoiwz doaest thie ochnara…cter speak? ☻ What is revealed through the character’s private thoughts and feelings? ☻ What is the character’s effect on others? How do other characters feel or behave in reaction to the character? ☻ What does the character do? How does he/she behave? ☻ What does the character look like? Dress like?
  • 19.

Editor's Notes

  1. Exposition: The mood and conditions existing at the beginning of the story. The setting is identified. The main characters with their positions, circumstances and relationships to one another are established. The exciting force or initial conflict is introduced. Sometimes called the “Narrative HOOK” this begins the conflict that continues throughout the story. Rising Action: The series of events, conflicts, and crises in the story that lead up to the climax, providing the progressive intensity, and complicate the conflict. Climax: The turning point of the story. A crucial event takes place and from this point forward, the protagonist moves toward his inevitable end. The event may be either an action or a mental decision that the protagonist makes. Falling Action: The events occurring from the time of the climax to the end of the story. The main character may encounter more conflicts in this part of the story, but the end is inevitable. Resolution/Denouement: The tying up of loose ends and all of the threads in the story. The conclusion. The hero character either emerges triumphant or is defeated at this point.
