Whether we realize it or not, every story has a structure that helps us follow and be interested by it:

- Exposition is the introduction that shows the reader the characters and setting
- Rising action is the part of the story that develops conflict and leads to the climax of the story
- Climax is the turning point for the character where conflict is at it's peak
- The falling action guides us from the climax to the resolution of the story
- Resolution is where the main conflict of the narrative is solved or resolved in some way

When beginning a story of your own, it is helpful to think through the main conflict that the characters will face in the story.

Learning Objective

This lesson will help students practice forming a narrative using technique, detail, and event sequences.

Guided practice

These questions ask students to define the five main parts of a story and to review the definitions of the parts of a story.


Why is it important for a story to have structure? How does it help us as readers to identify conflict early in a story?
