Reading Logs Book Report - Story Map Graphic Organizers
Non-Fiction Book Reports

Story Maps are graphic organizers that can be useful in helping a student analyze or write a story. This type of analysis is especially good for examining fables and folktales.

Story map graphic organizers help the student identify the elements of the story and the theme or moral of the story. Some of the many elements of a story include the important characters (their appearance, personality traits, and motivations), the setting of the story (time and place), the problem faced by the characters, how the problem is approached, and the outcome.

There are many types of story maps that examine different elements of the story (and reveal different structures within a story).
