Activity Overview


Johnny Tremain is a strongly dynamic character who matures significantly over the novel’s two-year span. Students should be able to identify ways that Johnny changes and incidents that illustrate this change. Storyboarding can be an excellent way to identify and depict these moments. In a brief two-cell storyboard, students can show a “before and after” pair, identifying one of Johnny’s early character qualities and the way it develops over time. Expanding the assignment to include multiple pairs can be helpful preparation for writing assignments on character development.

Patient

After living with Rab, Johnny learns patience. When Sam Adams's servant Sukey splashes water on Johnny, he counts to ten before getting angry. As a result, he is invited inside for pie.
