    Do you know what this is?  We have been using this diagram to learn about fiction story structure.  The set up, or lead, introduces us to things like characters, setting & plot.  The problem is indicated by the rising diagonal line - there is generally a series of events that lead to a climax, where the "turn around" occurs - the problem gets turned around, which leads to a resolution or lesson learned.  Understanding story structure in the stories we read can help us become better writers of the stories we WRITE, and also leads to deeper thinking and comprehension.  Ask your Kindergarten reader/writer to explain how it workssmile!
