180 Days of Inspired Teaching: Plot Diagram

Before the students can figure out how the setting contributes to the climax, we have to be able to define and identify the climax {insert middle school humor here.}  Don't panic....it can be really easy and fun!


1.  I LOVE Scope magazine!  They have super interesting plays for students. For this lesson I went with the Seabiscuit play.

2.  Split the students into groups

3.  Give each group a part of the play {you may have to split the rising action up to accommodate the groups} and time to review parts and staging {15 minutes.}

4. Introduce each part on the diagram with a definition & then have the corresponding group act it out!

It's super easy on your part & engaging on their part!

Happy teaching,
