What is plot?
Plot concerns the organization of the main
events in fiction. Plots will tell all the events
in a story in which characters are caught up in
a conflict that is eventually resolved.

1. Exposition
Can you give me a definition for
Exposition?
• Did You get it right?
• This usually occurs at the beginning
of a short story. Here the characters
are introduced. We also learn about
the setting of the story. This section
also presents other facts necessary
to understanding the story.
2. Rising Action
• Can you give me a definition for
Rising Action in story?
The rising action includes all
the events that lead to the
climax. It also presents some
type of conflict.
Did you get it?
3. Climax Let’s think.
What does it
mean when
a story
reaches the
climax?
Did you remember?
The “high point.” This is the
turning point of the story.
Usually the main character
comes face to face with a
conflict. The main character
will change in some way.
4. Falling Action
Can you explain just
what Falling Action is all
about?
So falling action is when all
loose ends of the plot are
tied up. The conflict(s) and
climax are taken care of.
Ok. Did you explain stories
have falling action?
5. Resolution
• Only one more now – Define
resolution in a story?
Resolution is when all the
loose ends of the story are
tied up for the reader.
So did you get them
all?
Sounds like
you own this!!
Let’s take the
test !!
