"Story element instruction, at the middle school level, is focused on the analysis of the various plot elements and their development over the course of a story. Accomplishing these objectives in a creative and unique manner can be a challenge. Most students that walk into the middle school language arts classroom have at least a few years of experience in identifying story elements. They also have practice completing various plot diagram graphic organizers and their accompanying responses. Incorporating art into story element instruction builds upon and develops students’ ability to view the elements individually and examine their significance in the overall story. The following are two lesson ideas that incorporate students’ creative art skills into story element analysis."
