Storyboard Text

  • "The Scarlet Ibis"
  • Tone
  • Word Choice
  • James Hurst By: Amy Sippel
  • Imagery and Detail
  • The tone of the story is dark and scary. The reader can see this by the setting: it's storming. Also, it mentions the coffin in the second paragraph, which also overshadows that the tone is going to be dark.
  • Style
  • The word choice in the first sentence set the tone of the whole story. "It was in the clove of seasons, summer was dead but autumn had not yet been born, that the ibis lit in the bleeding tree." The words are very descriptive. The reader can almost see it in their head. The words are dark. The reader can tell this story is going to be scary or sad.
  • Theme
  • Why didn't I help him!
  • "When he fell, I grabbed him in my arms and hugged him, our laughter pealing through the swamp like a ringing bell. "  The laughter was so loud and gentle, it could be compare to a bell. This show the imagery and details because the reader could understand what it would sound like. 
  • I think the story is Narrative and Expository because it explains everything that happened. The picture above shows the scarlet ibis and how doodle and the bird are alike. They are out of place and end up dead.
  • I think the theme is don't force someone to be someone they're not. The older brother is forcing doodle to do all these things he is not capable of. When he pushed Doodle to his limits, he ended up being left behind and shocked by lighting. He was  born with the caul and wasn't physically healthy 
  • I'm dead xx
