This presentation can be used to teach plot structure.

  • Hi Laura, I've just seen your presentation on plot structure and found it really usefull to teach it to my kids. However, I think it's a little bit too long for their level, so I'd like to ask you for your permission to edit and adapt the presentation for my students. As we are from Argentina, English is not our mother tongue, we learn it as a foreign language and that's why I need to adapt contents. I'll be looking forward to your answer. Regards, Graciela.
