As explained in the description of the tool, “students can map out the key elements of character, setting, conflict, and resolution for activities associated with works of drama. The interactive includes a set of graphic organizers which can facilitate postreading as well as prewriting activities that best suit your curriculum. After completing individual sections or the entire organizer, students have the ability to print out their final versions for feedback and assessment.”
