4 Story Plot Diagram Lob s Girl Learning Objective Describe the plot techniques of flashback and foreshadowing in a fictional story or drama determine how the character develops or changes in response to that conflict. I Can Statement I can describe how an author uses flashbacks and foreshadowing in a story to develop a character. Cornwall, England Exposition Where? A small fishing village in Cornwall, England. The story also takes place in the Pengelly home. When? Summertime The Pengelly family was at the beach when a dog came up to Sandy and began licking her face. Who? Sandy, Lob, Jean (mother), Bert (father), Aunt Becky Sandy's aunt, Granny Pearce, Don her older brother, and the twins, Tess and Tim What happens? Sandy plays with Lob on the beach. Foreshadowing- (Page 75, Lines 23-26) Little did they guess how soon the state of things would be changed by a large new member that was going to erupt in their midst. Internal Conflict: Sandy and Lob want to be together forever. Flashback is a scene that interrupts a story to describe an earlier event Foreshadowing is the authors use of clues to hint what might happen later in a story. Theme is the lesson you take away or learn from a story. Lob longs to be with the Pengelly family Rising Action Lob breaks through the kitchen window to be with Sandy, but he is returned home. Lob sees Sandy on the beach the next day. Sandy hears Lob is leaving on the train. Lob wails when he sees Sandy at the station. Lob breaks through the Pengelly s window at home. Lob is returned home. Lob travels a 400 mile journey to be with the Pengelly family. Lob is given to the Pengelly family lives with them for 9 years! I can describe how an author uses flashbacks and foreshadowing in a story to develop a character. Sandy is hit by a truck Climax Foreshadowing- (Page 81,Lines 29-31) LOW GEAR FOR 1 ½ MILES. DANGEOUS TO CYLISTS. As a result, the reader can infer that someone may get hurt or an accident may occur on that road. Sandy is hit by a truck and falls into a serious coma. External Conflict-Will Sandy survive after the coma? Flashback-(Page 84 Lines 1-4) They forgot how they called their older sister bossy and remembered how - she shared her pocket money with them. This reveals that the twins miss their sister and they took her for granted. Lob waits outside. He is forlorn and sobbing. Lob is permitted to visit Sandy in the hospital. Sandy awakens from the coma when she senses Lob. The doctors are amazed! Pearson, Common Core Literature Textbook, Page 74 Who was the German Shepherd? Falling Action and Resolution Mr. Pengelly tells everyone that the visitor could not have been Lob. Lob was killed in the truck accident. Sandy s brother buried Lob at sea. Who could the shepherd be? No one could explain the German Shepherd s presence at the hospital and the wet footprints left by the dog on the stairs. What do you think? Did Lob save Sandy s life? What can you infer from the story ending? Theme Dogs a devoted, loving, and loyal pets.
