The setting in a story includes where and when the story takes place. There are usually several settings in a novel. In historical fiction novels such as Glory Be, when the story takes place is extremely important as it is centered around an important time in the past. This novel takes place in the deep South, during a time of segregation and racism. For this activity, students will describe and illustrate the where and when of Glory Be using a 2-3 cell storyboard.
