Lesson 5.03LESSON Objectives: At the end of this lesson, students will be able to: -Identify conflict in a drama, novel, or short story. -provide quotations from a text to show how dialogue impacts the conflict of a story. ACADEMIC VOCABULARYEven though some of these terms may seem familiar to you, it’s extremely important that we understand them so you’re able to answer the questions in the assessment:Setting: the time and place in which a story happens. Basically this is the backdrop or scene design of a stage. It answers the question “Where does the story take place?”Protagonist: the main character of a story who must struggle with the conflict. To describe a protagonist, you need to understand his motives(the reason why he does what he does), actions(what he actually does in the story), and from the motivesand actions, you can infer charactertraits(adjectives you would use to describe his personality). Conflict: the problem or struggle a protagonist has to face throughout the story. There are several different types of conflict: man vs. man, man vs. self, man vs. nature, man vs. society. Rising Actions: these are scenes in the novel in which the conflict becomes worse and bigger. These scenes are meant to build tension to keep the reader engaged. Dialogue: the part of a story during which a character speaks or thinks. Dialogue is often put into quotation marks with a tagline at the end indicating who said the dialogue.
Narration: this is the part of the story in which the narrator explains what is going on in the story. It is not dialogue and often contains important descriptions of what’s going on in the story and what the author wants you to know.
