Storyboard Text

  • "Scarlet Ibis"
  • T (dreary)
  • W (graveyard)
  • James Hearst
  • I ("wildflowers, wild violets, honeysuckle, yellow jasmine")
  • This picture represents the overall dreariness and darkness of the story, and the fact that the reader always had somewhat of a sense that something bad would happen due to the narrator's excessive selfishness and pride.
  • S (Foreshadowing-"Don't leave me, Brother," he cried, and leaned toward his coffin.)
  • "Don't leave me brother!"
  • This picture represents a graveyard because that is where Doodle will eventually end up by the end of the story. 
  • T (the narrator had too much pride to the point where it killed Doodle)
  • "Faster Doodle!"
  • This picture represents all of the flowers that the narrator would look for with Doodle at the Old Woman Swamp.
  • This represents the part at the beginning of the story where the narrator is telling Doodle to touch the coffin, and threatening to leave him if he doesn't. This is foreshadowing because Doodle will die at the end of the story because his brother leaves him behind in the storm.
  • This picture represents the narrator's pride throughout the story, and him encouraging Doodle. This eventually gets Doodle killed, as the narrator makes him keep working, even though a storm was approaching.
