    TEACHING LITERARY ELEMENTS

    In one lesson, I have read William Steig's "Sylvester and the Magic Pebble" as a read-aloud. As guided practice, the class then fills in a chart listing the elements of a story. The elements we identify are: CHARACTERS (Who), SETTING, and the different aspects of the PLOT --(GOAL [Wanted], OBSTACLE [But], ATTEMPT [So], OUTCOME [Then], FINAL RESOLUCTION). They enjoy the activity and absolutely love the story. The Who-Wanted-But-So-Then becomes an easily remembered model in writing a summary of the story.

    Hope this helps.
