Strategies for Structuring Story Generation [article]

Angela Fan, Mike Lewis, Yann Dauphin
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We explore coarse-to-fine models for creating narrative texts of several hundred words, and introduce new models which decompose stories by abstracting over actions and entities.  ...  Writers generally rely on plans or sketches to write long stories, but most current language models generate word by word from left to right.  ...  Conclusion We proposed an effective method for writing short stories by separating the generation of actions and entities.  ...

Strategies for Structuring Story Generation

Angela Fan, Mike Lewis, Yann Dauphin
2019 Proceedings of the 57th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
We explore coarse-to-fine models for creating narrative texts of several hundred words, and introduce new models which decompose stories by abstracting over actions and entities.  ...  The model first generates the predicate-argument structure of the text, where different mentions of the same entity are marked with placeholder tokens.  ...  Conclusion We proposed an effective method for writing short stories by separating the generation of actions and entities.  ...

Comparing Effects of Different Cinematic Visualization Strategies on Viewer Comprehension [chapter]

Arnav Jhala, R. Michael Young
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In particular, an evaluation of automatically generated visualizations from Darshak, a cinematic planning system, against different hand-generated visualization strategies is presented.  ...  The methodology used in the empirical evaluation is based on QUEST, a cognitive framework for question-answering in the context of stories, that provides validated predictors for measuring story coherence  ...  For each of the 10 questions, approximately 15 answer nodes were selected from nodes that were within a structural distance of 3 in the QKS graph generated from the story data structure.  ...

Evaluation of intelligent camera control systems based on cognitive models of comprehension

Arnav Jhala, R. Michael Young
2009 Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Foundations of Digital Games - FDG '09  
The proposed methodology can be used specifically for evaluating the effectiveness of the camera system in communicating the story.  ...  We propose a novel evaluation methodology for intelligent camera control systems based on established techniques of measuring story comprehension from cognitive psychology.  ...  following the protagonist, and one with camera plan automatically generated by Darshak, a discourse planning algorithm [5] that generates plans for camera shots from a given story.  ...

Incorporating Strategy Instruction Within the Writing Process in the Regular Classroom: Effects on the Writing of Students with and without Learning Disabilities

Barbara Danoff, Karen R. Harris, Steve Graham
1993 Journal of Reading Behavior  
The schematic structure of their stories improved substantially following instruction and remained improved over time and with a different teacher.  ...  Overall, improvements in story quality were maintained and generalized by all of the students, except for the younger fourth graders and one fifth-grade student who failed to maintain quality gains on  ...  Students also spent some time generating ideas for different story parts.  ...

Using Story Grammar to Assist Students with Learning Disabilities and Reading Difficulties Improve their Comprehension

Maria Earman Stetter, Marie Tejero Hughes
2009 Education and Treatment of Children  
One way for teachers to support students' comprehension of narrative text is to actively instruct them in using story grammar strategies.  ...  This review provides an overview of research focused on using story grammar as a comprehension strategy, as well as examines the success of the strategy with students with special needs and reading difficulties  ...  Continued practice after explicit instruction ends is always recommended for generalization of any strategy and can certainly be used with review of the story grammar strategies.  ...

Reading Comprehension Instruction for Students with Learning Disabilities

Asha K. Jitendra, Meenakshi Gajria
2011 Focus on exceptional children  
For example, a web or hierarchical concept map can be used for a descriptive text structure, a flow chart for a cause-effect text structure, and a Venn diagram for a compare-contrast text structure.  ...  Narrative Texts Story grammar (or story schema) represents the structure of narrative texts.  ...

Perspectives of learners and teachers on implementing the storytelling strategy as a way to develop story writing skills among middle school students

Fatma Alkaaf, Xiaofei Lu
2017 Cogent Education  
Semi-structured interviews were also used for the five teachers participating in this study.  ...  The main findings of the study were: 93.4% found the strategy useful, 92% liked this strategy and 92.4% agreed that whilst they prepared for writing the story, they were doing more things during their  ...  Every story needs a structure (or perhaps a restructure) for the listener to make sense of it.  ...

Toward a Generative Model of Legend: Pizzas, Bridges, Vaccines, and Witches

Timothy Tangherlini
2017 Humanities  
We propose a generative model of the legend.  ...  The model supports the study of rumor, and the dynamics of storytelling, including the hyperactive transmission state of "viral" stories.  ...  I would like to thank NSF's Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics for providing me the opportunity to explore these ideas with researchers from many different disciplines.  ...

Exploring Baselines for Combining Full Plots into Multiple-plot Stories

Eugenio Concepción, Pablo Gervás, Gonzalo Méndez
2020 New generation computing  
Four strategies for weaving plots are proposed, two taken from literary studies and two computational baselines, and a formative evaluation of a set of stories produced by these solutions is presented.  ...  Many of the stories at the core of narrative entertainment involve a number of plot lines that combine to give them interest.  ...  Juxtaposition Strategy The plot for Story 1 (see Appendix 8) is generated by applying the juxtaposition strategy.  ...
