Today in class we reviewed the elements of plot. We watched the Pixar short movie “Lifted” and identified the elements of plot (exposition, rising action, conflict, climax, falling action, resolution). We then looked back at our short story “Eleven” and identified the elements of plot from the short story. Students are doing a really good job with this but it is evident that we need some more practice. We will continue to practice this daily in class until everyone has reached mastery. This will be on our first test in October so it is important that the students are able to identify these elements.

Homework is to continue to work on the summer reading project!
