This StAIR could be easily adapted to other novels or readings.  I enjoyed the use of video.  Knowing plot elements is important at all levels, and I could adapt this to a middle school lesson.  The only adjustment I would make is that some of the slides are a little text heavy.  I may separate some of the information out onto separate slides.

Reviewing plot structure is an important point to make in any language arts course with students of any age. This StAIR specifically relates the lesson of plot structure to the book "To Kill A Mockingbird." While I think that connecting the lesson to a specific book might limit the usefulness of this StAIR for some teachers, there are enough educators teaching this book that it will still reach a wide audience. I can also see myself adapting this lesson to meet the needs of a more general audience or an audience reading a different book. The use of videos from the movie version is a powerful way to explain concepts such as rising and falling action, which can be abstract for some students.

Technical Remarks:

This is a PowerPoint slideshow, but does not open in kiosk mode right away. Users will need to click "play slideshow" in order to run the StAIR.
