A set of 8 narrative text structure posters to add to your classroom narrative writing display.

Brighten up your classroom narrative writing display with this set of narrative writing posters!

These posters explain the structure of narrative texts in clear and simple language. They also provide tips for students about what to include in each section.

The narrative writing posters include a description of the following aspects of narrative text structure:

  • Orientation – this is the beginning of the story where the setting, the characters and the plot are introduced.
  • Complication – this is a problem or challenge that the characters need to solve or overcome.
  • Series of events – these are the events that occur as the characters try to solve the problem or overcome the challenge.
  • Resolution – this is the ending of the story where the characters have solved the problem or have overcome the challenge.

An example text, Robot Hide and Seek, has been included. The text has been split to show the orientation, complication, series of events, and resolution.

Encourage your students to refer to the posters regularly during narrative writing sessions.
