The Education Plot

Description

In the education plot, the main character may start off as something of a rascal, rogue or other degenerative, although still retaining some lovable characteristics such that the reader retains some association with them. Through various situations and adventures, the protagonist then is forced to re-evaluate underlying beliefs and values, and hence learn and grow as individuals.

Example

Mark Twain's 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn'

Discussion

Many of us will relate to this kind of tale, particularly in our childhood, where we learned important lessons about life and the world. Such stories can thus re-evoke childhood experiences and remind us of the learning that brought us to our more mature adult positions.

These stories may also act as teaching devices, bringing new thought and vicarious learning to the reader.

The Education Plot is one of Friedman's story plots.
