Activity Overview


Frayer Model storyboards can be helpful for introducing new concepts or vocabulary terms to students. The Frayer Model is particularly helpful for complex thematic concepts that can be understood differently by different people and in varied contexts. The sample storyboard investigates the concept of patriarchy, which is never explicitly named in the novel but dominates the social structure of the Puritan society. Provided below is a list of words that can be used to introduce students to thematic concepts along with a list of vocabulary pulled directly from the text.
