Activity Overview

Important lines or events can be highlighted with storyboards. Ask students to make personal connections to the text by selecting and illustrating an important part and explaining its significance. You can direct students to choose a scene, a line of dialogue, or one of the many literary allusions in the book. This is a simple and engaging way for students to demonstrate an understanding of the novel’s characters, plot, or theme. The example below shows a sample storyboard making a connection to a poem Hazel recites.

The Fault in Our Stars Personal Connection

Favorite Literary Reference

"so much depends / upon / a red wheel / barrow / glazed with rain / water / beside the white / chickens" I like this poem because it means that the simple things in life are very important, like spending time with your grandmother.
