Activity Overview


Storyboarding is an excellent way to focus on comparisons of characters. Students can explore characters by centering around interests, actions, or character traits. In the storyboard, each example should be visually represented, along with an explanation of the character, and why it shows a certain trait or aspect of that character.

Using a T-Chart with three cells across, show how two characters are both similar and dissimilar in their attitude towards Melody. The center cell should show how the characters are the same and the outside cells should show their differences. This should be done in the fashion a Venn Diagram is done - the middle cell is the same as where the two circles overlap.
