A good story includes who the story is about (the characters), what it is about (the plot) and where it takes place (the setting). A storyteller can create any story with these building blocks. As readers, when we can identify these elements in a story, we can better interpret, understand and respond to it. Additionally, it's entertaining when we can tell it in different ways, such as through the rhyming style of rap.
