What's a Nine-Point Plot Structure?

I'm doing a summer reading assignment on 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', and one of the questions says to use a nine point plot structure to outline the action in this play. My question is: WHAT THE HECK IS A NINE-POINT PLOT STRUCTURE? (And if any of you do know, can you please obviously tell me what it is, and can you also give me an example.)

Many thanks to anyone who can help me!

A plot structure is a way to tell the story, as if the story is seen through one set of eyes. Shakespeare uses here four plot levels, and on each level we see the story through different eyes, for a total of nine ways the story is told.
Look at the story as seen in the wedding plot, the story of the lovers plot, the fairies, and the mechanics (Bottom, Quince and company)efforts.
The grouping and tying in of these plots into one thread is the total plot structure. Of such stuff great plays and novels, and even stories are told.



Thank you very much!
