Plot fill in Information for Notebooks

The Elements of Plot




Plot: The structure of a story. This is the format that all stories, movies, and TV

shows follow.

Rising Action
Falling Action

There are 5 parts to plot:






The exposition is the beginning of a story. This part of any plot includes information about characters and their situation.


  • Authors provide readers with key background information.

o   We learn about the characters

o   We learn about the setting

o   We may learn a little about the conflict before it is fully introduced


Rising Action


Rising action begins with the introduction of conflicts.

  • Main events in the story begin to occur.
  • The action rises and grows in suspense as the action intensifies
  • The characters work to try to resolve the conflict as they work towards the climax of the story




The climax is the turning point of the story.

  • The moment where the main character acts in such a way that the plot changes direction.
  • The character may change in some way (become a dynamic character).
  • The character may make a decision that directly leads to the resolution of the conflict.


Falling Action


All action following the climax is referred to as “falling action.”

  • Main events are the actions the character has to do to solve the problem now that they know the solution or the action that just leads to the resolution.




The conclusion of the story is the resolution. This is the end of the story.

  • The story’s conflicts are resolved.
  • The conflict may be resolved in a positive way for the main character -OR-
  • The conflict may be resolved in such a way that there is an ending, but not in favor of the main character.
