Activity Overview

Have students choose a scene in the book that they feel has significance to the overall story. Using a spider map, students separate the scene into its most important points, using visuals and dialogue to bring these events to life. The storyboard should not only depict important elements from the scene, but also explain why it is significant to the story.

Here are some questions to get students thinking:

  • Is this scene a turning point for one or more of the characters?

  • Does this scene set up something important later on in the story?

  • How do the characters react to the events?

  • How do the events more the plot forward?

  • What important information is revealed in this scene?
