Students will identify the plot and subplot in a story. Tell students that many stories have a plot and one or more subplots. Explain that the plot is the major conflict, while a subplot consists of a minor conflict that connects to the main plot. Often, a subplot introduces new characters and helps readers better understand the story.
Have students complete this organizer in pairs or small groups to encourage discussion and collaboration on determining the plot and subplot of a story.
