Blog #3 – TV SHOW PLOT SUMMARY
DUE: Tuesday, December 21
VALUE: 100 point test
Directions: Your assignment this week is to watch TV! Can you believe it? You are to choose a program to watch and write a summary of the plot of the show. You should include these words: plot, exposition, setting, characters, conflict, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution. The words do not have to be in that order. For bonus points, you may include the word “theme” as well.
If you do not watch TV, or if you choose not to do this assignment for a TV show, it can easily be done for a short story. We have several short stories in our classroom to choose from. If you are not able to post your summary to the blog, simply bring in a neatly written or typed copy of the summary.
Since this is a longer blog post than usual, it will be our only one this week. Also, this will be the assessment for the vocabulary words above. Therefore, it will be worth a 100-point test grade. This is not an assignment you can afford to miss! Please ask me any questions by Monday, December 20.
