Questions About Remote Learning?

Activity Overview

An exceptional way to help your students follow a story is to have them track the important details. This helps students develop a greater understanding of how the events fit together to provide the overall structure of the story. A beginning, middle, end plot summary is perfect for students to practice identifying the elements of a story.

While this activity provides an example for a BME summary of The Little Prince, the activity can be further customized if you want students to use a different plot structure. Check out our resources on plot diagrams and narrative structure templates for additional information!
