Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • The Last Dog  Katherine Paterson
  •   "What is your reason for  external travel?"  (Paterson   2  ). 
  • I  want to leave the dome for scientific research,  I should be back in around 1800 hours. 
  • Hello, my name is Brock!   
  • Rising Action
  • "Your name is Brog,  all right?"    (   Paterson   46 ). 
  • "It's alright, dog...I won't hurt you."    ( Paterson   38 ).
  • No mom!    Please don't die!
  • Conflict
  • This is Brog, I found if outside the dome. I give you permission to do research    on him.
  • I love you so much!
  • "It will have to go to Research."  (Paterson  63). 
  • Brock lives in a dome and wants to go do some scientific research on the outside world .   But in order to complete this, he must ask  the inquiry board.  The inquiry board gives him permission to explore, the machine gives him enough food pellets   and water to  last the 1800 hours. 
  • Climax 
  • Question of the day- Should  we clone  Brog?
  • He looks like he is about to bite the dog? Why is that?
  • Brock is looking and finds a dog and wonders why it is not extinct, he names it Brog.   Brog starts to drink the water out of the river, Brock is completely  horrified.  He wondered why the dog   didn't have any side effects.  Brock had fell in love with Brog but he didn't want to leave him outside, so he smuggled the dog into the dome.
  • Falling Action
  • Paterson states, "  ...Brog was delirious with joy, jumping and running about in circles around Brock's boots." (93).  
  • We're free
  • When Brock walks up to the inquiry board, it detects Brog as an actual dog. Everyone is the dome wants to do research on him  so Brock gives the chief permission to complete research on Brog.   The chief scanned and poked Brog until he began to whimper, which was not a way to treat a dog.   Later, Brock found out  that scientists were thinking about cloning Brog.   
  • Resolution 
  • Paterson states,"Could they be wrong?"  (93).
  • The world is beautiful!
  • The scientists were figuring out what to do with Brog. Brock figures out that rabies is the key to   expelling Brog and him of the fear of spreading the disease. They go to the lab and wait for the right time  to make their move.   Once Brock bit Brog's  tail  everyone scattered the room, no one held him back as he loaded up with water and food pellets. Him and Brog both  exit the room in silence.
  • What are you doing?
  • Paterson states, " That was the cue. Brock turned  and bit  Brog on the tail  so hard..."  (89).
  • Don't you dare!!
  • Brog and Brock both escape from the dome and are finally free. But, Brock is still wondering why Brog is not poisoned or dying.  He wonders if the dome dwellers  might have been wrong about the outside world.
  • I love you so much!
  • Brock takes off his mask and realizes that the world isn't poisonous.  He realizes that the dome dwellers were wrong, and you can live outside the earth without dying.
  • I love the Earth!
