When an author makes a radical shift in direction or outcome of a fictional story, we call that a plot twist. Some of the best written works of all time include some form plot twist. These twists can be presented by the author at any point in the story. The goal of any well-formed twist is to immerse the audience in the story and help them form a strong emotional connection to a fictional story. These worksheets will help students become more comfortable with recognizing this technique in an author's work. We will subtly walk them through the development of writing a plot twist of their own work.
