Edward has met many people and had many experiences during his journey. For this activity, students will choose which part of Edward’s journey was their favorite, or choose their favorite scene. Having students choose a favorite scene from the book allows them to express which parts of the story resonated with them on a personal level. In this way, students are making a text-to-self connection that demonstrates their understanding of the characters and their development or the themes of the novel. Students can share their storyboards afterwards and have a short discussion about what the scene means to them and why they chose it.
