Sometimes you need a little light reading in your life – something just for fun. Today, we have a just-for-fun comic by the awesome artist Grant Snider. Your students might appreciate the bit about how reading is dangerous in many ways, but we think the story coaster below is an excellent visualization of the different parts of a plot and storytelling.
Personally, I think it is a huge upgrade from the typical flat line – spike – flat line visual that I knew from my high school days.
It touches on all of the elements of plot in a fun way that will be easy for your students to understand. Don’t forget to share this awesome graphic with your colleagues!
