Plot and timeline

703 | 1 | 1
In this lesson we consider the plot and timeline of a short story. Learners are introduced to the terms: “build up”, “climax”, “d?�nouement” and “resolution” and these are then illustrated by describing how these terms can be applied to ‘The Suit’. As an extension of this lesson, look at other examples of short stories that you have studied in class and ask learners to identify how the different components of plot play out in these stories. This activity will make learners more comfortable using the vocabulary discussed in this lesson and will also demonstrate how most stories follow this structure.
