Activity Overview


As students read, a storyboard can serve as a helpful character reference log. This log (also called a character map) allows students to recall relevant information about important characters. When reading a novel, small attributes and details can become more important as the plot progresses. With character mapping, students can record this information, helping them follow along and catch the subtleties that make reading more enjoyable!

Using a character map for Frankenstein is even more beneficial. It allows students to record the nuances of characteristics that create "foil" characters. The information that they record will help them to return and review personalities that contrast. The ability to visually see this helps students create connections and makes understanding concepts easier.
