Discussion Board Question: In a play or film of your choosing, describe one of these elements of storytelling (exposition, inciting incident, rising action, climax, falling action, or resolution)?
Exposition: The background, history, or back story, that sets up the plot.
Inciting Incident: the event that sets everything in motion. This moment is when an event thrusts the protagonist into the main action of the story.
Rising Action: Tension increases as the story’s central conflict grows through successive plot development
Climax: The most intense point in the development of a story, its culmination, the point of maximum intensity, or its major turning point.
Falling Action: Occurs after the climax and begins the resolution.
Resolution: The final solution to the “problem” in the story.
