Activity Overview


A common use for Storyboard That is to help students create a plot diagram of the events from a novel. Not only is this a great way to teach the parts of the plot, but it reinforces major events and help students develop greater understanding of literary structures.

Students can create a storyboard capturing the narrative arc in a novel with a six-cell storyboard containing the major parts of the plot diagram. For each cell, have students create a scene that follows the novel in the sequence using: Exposition, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution.

Lord of the Flies Plot Diagram Example

Exposition

The boys' plane crashes, and they are stranded on a deserted island. When they all swim ashore, the boys find a conch shell and use it to call to the others.


Conflict

A struggle for power begins. Most of the boys, particularly Ralph, attempt to create order. However, some of the boys, especially Jack, do not want to listen to Ralph.


Rising Action

As Ralph struggles to maintain order, the lack of adults, laws, and structure creates chaos among the boys. Rumors of a monster on the island begin to circulate. Jack and his hunting party vow to kill the monster.


Climax

Piggy is killed, and the faction led by Jack has taken on a savage, ritualistic mentality. Ralph goes to confront them.


Falling Action

Jack and the hunters turn on Ralph and begin to hunt him.


Resolution

Ralph runs to the beach to escape Jack. There, he encounters a British naval officer. As he attempts to tell him what has happened, he breaks down into tears. When the other boys arrive, they also begin to sob.
