Setting Brace Maps

As a part of story structure, I want my students to understand the setting of a story. This is one of the most difficult parts for my students. They simply say outside or inside for a setting. A Setting Brace Map is a great way for students to understand a setting and take it a step deeper.

These are Setting Brace Maps some of my students completed on the story Diary of a Spider. They could pick any part of the story and describe the setting. With a Setting Brace Map, the students write down what the setting is by describing it and then draw what they wrote. It has my students go more in depth and just saying inside, outside, or at home.
