This was not fair!
The conflict in this story was an external conflict because the conflict of the story is that if you win the lottery a member of your family dies. If you get the black dot on your piece of paper then you have to draw within your family and someone gets picked from there to be stoned based on who wins that.
The rising action in this story was when Mr. Summers starts to call up each head of household one by one to draw a card and then after they drew the card the rising action continues as they have to wait until everyone has a card as the anticipation builds as Mr. Summers calls up not only the head of household for the Allen, Anderson and Bantam families he then calls Harburt, Hutchinson and the Jones families head of household.
The climax of the story or the turning point was when everyone opened their pieces of paper and the Hutchinson family found out that they were the ones who got the black dot as this event changes the entire story as it was the story could have gone in many directions.
The falling action in the story was when the Hutchinson's were each drawing a piece of paper and when they opened up the papers and found out that it was Tessie who was the one who had to get stoned by the village.
The resolution of the story was when the village "was upon" Tessie as that is the final quote in the story. The village had started to stone Tessie and had hit her in the side of the head with a couple of the rocks as the village stoned her.
