When trying to retell a story, it is important to remember as many aspects of the story as you can. If certain details are lost, or things happen in an incorrect order, the audience becomes either confused or disinterested. To avoid this, be sure to either 1)take notes, or 2)make a story map. Taking notes to the side of the content being read is a great tool that can help trigger memories about the story as you skim through it. Another good way to remember details is to create a story map. This can be done by writing important events that happen in a story on a separate sheet of paper, that can later be used as a reference.
