Study of Plot in English. [Computer Diskette].
Hughes, Tony
Part of a three-program set, this computer software provides a comprehensive range of generic questions on plot in literature. The program is comprised of: 150 questions sorted into 14 categories; supporting ideological commentary classifying question types; and a user-friendly program enabling worksheet production. It is underpinned by a Critical Literacy approach to aid the teacher who wishes to expand their understanding of the relationship between the theory and practice of English teaching. The program addresses: predictions about plot and expectations as readers; plot exposition; character construction and plot; writer's portrayal of plot; gender characteristics of plot; rising action; common plot patterns; plot conflict; stereotypical elements of plot; climax and suspense; interactive elements of character, setting, and theme; intertextual emphasis; social and cultural context of plot; and a reviewing of plot construction.
