The Seven Basic Plots

This is an interactive Powerpoint presentation I have made to help students interact with plots in creative writing. I gave them a summary of ‘The Seven Basic Plots&’ book by Christopher Booker and examples of each, before asking them to think of their own examples and create their own stories. It&’;s an interesting topic, suitable for group work and individual tasks, and useful for helping them connect different books and plays together which they struggle to find connections between. It would suit a higher ability KS3 class.
