Applications of The Plot Diagram in education

Elementary and higher students will be happy to see this graphic organizer. It will definitely help them structure reading passages in novels and other literary productions. I wish i had this tool way back when i was in the university , we had to do all manually but now the graphic representation of the plot structure has made it completely clear even for the blind to see how the story is structured. It can be used both as a prewriting activity prompting students to constitute a coherent story out of a given plot or as a post reading task as students fill in the triangle with info about the story stages.
