Your students already know when they like a story and when they don't, but they may not know that the plots of these stories are shaping that opinion. Like all resources in this series, the two activities and quizzes provided here deal with one specific standard from the Common Core: RL.9-10.5. Your class will learn the basic parts of plot (exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and denouement) as well as some more advanced terms such as in medias res and MacGuffin. Activate your pupils' knowledge by introducing these terms and brainstorming examples from well-known movies and books together before they take the multiple-choice quizzes where they have to identify these terms from various examples.
