Storyboard Description

The six most important scenes in ¨The Miracle Worker.¨

Storyboard Text

  • Whats wrong Katie?
  • Helen? Helen. HELEN!!! She cant see. Look at her eyes, Captain. She cant hear. When I scream she doesn´t blink. Not an eyelash.
  • Hi im Kate, Helen's mother.
  • Annie Sullivan, nice to meet you. Helens not here? I was hoping she would be.
  • No! Eat off of your own plate! Everyone please leave while I deal with this.
  • Just let her do it this one time. Its the only way me and my son can have an adult conversation, if he is capable.
  • After the doctor leaves and tells Kate and Captain Keller that Helen has acute congestion, Kate goes to Helens crib and talks to Helen. She realizes that Helen isn't blinking when she talks or showing any sighs that she is listening, so she screams really loud. Helen does not cry, blink, or show any emotions that she heard or saw Kate scream. Kate realized Helen is blind and deaf, and she frantically calls her husband, Keller, into the room. He confirms that Helen is blind and deaf, and then the scene ends. A new scene begins when Helen, who is six and a half, is sitting with Martha and Percy, the servants children. Helen gets scissors and starts attacking Martha. This shows that Helen is very animalistic and misbehaved. Meanwhile, Aunt Ev, Helens aunt, is telling Helens parents, Kate and Captain Keller, about a doctor in Baltimore that is very good at helping and curing blind people. Captain Keller says he will write to the doctor, even though he doesn't think it will help Helen. The doctor then write to a man names Mr. Anagnos, who gets in touch with the Keller family and sends a former student of his, Annie Sullivan, a girl who used to be blind, to go live with the Kellers so she can help young Helen communicate with others despite her blindness.
  • I would like to take Helen somewhere where it is only me and her, and maybe a little helper.
  • you mean without us? Fine. You may use the garden house. Percy will go with you. You have two weeks, no more.
  • In this picture, Kate first meets Annie Sullivan, the young woman who is in her twenty's that is supposed to be Helens teacher. When Annie sees James, Helens half brother, she is very troubled because she used to have a little brother named Jimmie that died. They grew up in a asylum, and Annie ended up leaving her brother because she she wanted to attend school. Kate, James (Kellers son) and Keller first doubt Annie because she is so young and she used to be blind. When Annie first meets Helen, she gives her a doll. Annie finger-spells the word ¨doll¨ to Helen. Helen copies Annie and spells the word ¨doll¨ back into her hand. Annie thinks Helen is very smart now. When she tries to take away the doll, Helen tries to keep it. Her and Annie have a physical fight that ends up with Annie's tooth knocked out, and Helen locking Annie in a room that she has the key to. Keller ends up having to get a ladder and carry Annie through the window and down to the ground. Keller is not pleased by this because he wants his daughter to be happy, and he knows Helen doesn't like Annie (so far.) Helen drops the key to the locked door into the well. Annie sees this as a key to Helens heart. She has to work her way into it, and once she is in she will be able to teach Helen.
  • Let her go. Shes right, Kates right, In right. Your wrong. If you drive her (Annie) away from here it will be over my dead- chair.
  • what did you just say to me, Jimmie?!
  • In the morning, everyone sits down and starts eating breakfast, except Helen. Helen gets up and starts walking around the table, sticking her hands into other peoples food. When she gets to where Annie is sitting, she reaches for Annie's plate of food, but Annie dosent like this. Annie removes Helens hands from her plate, and of course Helen gets mad, and they start a big fight. Helen keeps trying to put her hands in Annie's plate, and Annie still refuses and moves her hand away. Helen gets all fussy and Annie realizes she needs more discipline. Eventually, Annie makes Helen eat from her own plate, eat with a spoon, and fold her napkin.
  • wah......wah.
  • Yes Helen. Yes! YES! W-A-T-E-R, Water!
  • Annie feels that Helen relies on her parents to much, and they spoil her, so she asks for some time where she could take Helen to a place alone, so she can have Helen rely on her for everything. Keller and Kate agree, so they furnish the garden house and let Annie, Helen, and Percy live in it for two weeks. After the two weeks are up, Helen folds her napkin and waits patiently for her food (that she will eat with the proper utensils) to come. She also weaves, witch is very hard for a blind person. Annie finger-spells words to her and Helen spells them back. Kate and Keller are both very pleased with what Annie has done for Helen, and they think she has done enough, but Annie thinks she has done next to nothing because Helen still dosent know a object has a name.
  • After the two weeks in the garden house, Helen, Percy, and Annie return to the Kellers house. That night, they all have supper with Helens favorite foods as a welcome home to her. While they are eating, Helen drops her napkin, so Annie picks it up for her, and she drops it again. James tells Annie Helen is testing her, and Captain Keller tells him no one wants to hear his opinion. This fight between Annie and Helen continues until Helen dumps the pitcher of water on Annie, so Annie leaves the room to make Helen fill up the pitcher again. Keller starts to go after her, but James stands up to his father (finally) and says that he should just let Annie do what she needs to do to teach Helen. This is a big step for James because he never stands up to his father like he should.
  • Annie takes Helen to fill up the water pitcher since she dumped it on Annie. While Annie makes Helen pump while she holds the pitcher their, filling it up with water, Helen drops the pitcher and feels the water. After feeling it, she slowly says the words ¨wah-wah.¨ Annie is very happy that Helen could remember that a object has a name. Helen started touching everything, like the pump, the ground, the stairs, and many other things, and has Annie finger-spell their names to her. Helen touches Her mother, father, and then Annie. Annie tells Helen that she is ¨teacher¨, not Annie (her real name.) Helen can now communicate with others and she has very good manners. Annie still stays at the house to keep teaching Helen after this, but it will be much easier now that she gets how to finger spell.
