shapes of stories
Think of a story you know well- a novel, a song, a TV show, and see if you can create an diagram showing the shape of that story, and annotate it as well with plot points at key points on the curve. You can do this in graphic software or sketch on a piece of paper and take a digital photo of your curve.
Write a blog post that describes how that shape influences the effectiveness of the story and tag/label it as storyshape (see what happens with that link as more people publish their posts).
Now that you’ve considered the shape of a story, meet with a group and choose other forms of communication you do might have a “shape” – what is the shape of an email message? a syllabus? a lesson plan? a research paper? a conference presentation?
Think about how you might apply some of the ideas from story shape to these forms of communication. Each person should blog about the communication format before you discuss the shape. Then comment back and forth on each other's post.
