Many people think of a setting as a backdrop to a story, but often it drives the actions and motives of the main characters. The setting involves two aspects the physical place and the time period in which it were taken place. The concept of the setting, in most stories, is often marginalized as to the level of importance for any story. Places can change over time just easily as the people that inhabit them. A well-placed setting can set the mood and scene for characters. For instance, if you read a work that started just after war ended and were experiencing the carnage left behind by the series of battles. You would instantly have sympathy for all of the characters that were present, even though they may have caused some of the carnage to a degree. These worksheets will help students unravel key elements of the settings of stories.
