Story Elements and Writing a Short Story

This Power point presentation includes information and practice on all of the basic short story elements and how they contribute to the overall meaning of the story. The scaffolded activities also include links to Pixar short films for the students to analyze. Finally, students write their own story by using the information they have learned and with the help of the graphic organizers provided for them. There are also extension links that will help you to differentiate learning.

There is also a HyperDoc version of the Powerpoint. You can find the link for it in the instructions document in the attachment. You can use this resource with your ESL students as well.
