Storyboard Text

  • Beginning: Childlike
  • Middle: Transioning
  • End: Adultlike
  • Lizabeth is childish in the beginning because she throws rocks at Miss Lottie's marigolds, and then calls Miss Lottie a witch. In the text, the author states, "Then I lost my head entirely, mad with the power of inciting such rage, and ran out of the bushes into the storm of pebbles, straight towards Miss Lottie chanting madly, 'Old witch, fell in a ditch, picked up a penny and thought she was rich!'"
  • Lizabeth is transitioning from a child to adult in this scene because after she makes fun of Miss Lottie, she doesn't join everyone in the celebration. Instead, she sits far away and feels ashamed. In the text, the author states, "Suddenly I was ashamed, and I did not like being ashamed. The child in me sulked and said it was all fun, but the woman in me flinched at the thought of the malicious attack that I had led."
  • Lizabeth has her adultlike moment in this scene because she pulled out Miss Lottie's marigolds and destroyed her yard for no reason. She realizes that Miss Lottie created a beauty in the middle of dust. In the text, the author states, "The witch was no longer a witch but only a broken old woman who had dared to create beauty in the midst of ugliness and sterility."
