  • You can read a short story in one setting.
  • A short story is less than 40 pages.
  • Short stories are written in prose.
  • Everything but poetry is written in prose.

What is Setting?
  • Where and when the story takes place
  • Can be real or imaginary
  • Described by using imagery
  • Language that appeals to the five senses
  • Sight
  • Hearing
  • Touch
  • Smell
  • Taste

3
Three Elements of Setting
  • Location
  • The geographical location the story takes place.
  • Environment
  • The type of surroundings in which the story takes
    place.
  • Time
  • The time in history (or the future) in which the
    story takes place.
  • PLEASE NOTE Many of these elements intertwine
    in writing and arent distinct.

Setting

1200 Clock Activity (3 min)
  • Think of a place you have been.
  • Describe the setting to your partner and see if
    he or she can guess where and when your setting

7
Setting and Characters
  • The setting helps the reader better understand
    the characters.
  • Characters interact with the setting to show and
    tell the story.
  • Setting helps the reader share what the
    characters see, hear, smell, and touch.

8
Setting and Plot
  • The setting supports the plot and should make
    sense.
  • Plot is the organized pattern or sequence of
    events that make up a story.
  • Each event causes or leads to the next.
  • Some events foreshadow other events.

9
Types of Linear Plots
  • Plots can be told in
  • -Chronological order Most stories are told in
    chronological order, the order in which events
    happen in real time.
  • -Flashback when the story begins with a
    character speaking as he or she remembers events
    from a past experience
  • -In media res (in the middle of things) when the
    story starts in the middle of the action without
    exposition

10
Five stages of Plot
  • Exposition- introduces the storys characters,
    setting, and conflict.
  • Rising Action- occurs as complications, twists,
    or intensifications of the conflict occur.
  • Climax- is the emotional high point of the story.
  • Falling Action- is the logical result of the
    climax.
  • Resolution- presents the final outcome of the
    story.
