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 story in sequence using: Exposition, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution.

"The Wedding Dance" Plot Diagram Example

Exposition

The setting is a mountain village of the Philippines where Awiyao has been remarried.


Conflict

Awiyao has left his wife Lumnay, whom he loved very much. However, she couldn’t give him a child. He has now married Madulimay in hopes to have a son, who will continue his legacy. This is something Awiyao expresses as important in his culture. However, Lumnay is upset because she loves Awiyao and doesn’t want this separation.


Rising Action

Outside, the villagers are dancing in celebration of the wedding. Awiyao leaves to try and comfort Lumnay. He offers her many items of the life that they built together. Lumnay refuses them and clings to Awiyao, wishing he would stay.


Climax

Awiyao finally leaves to re-join the wedding and Lumnay runs into the hills.


Falling Action

Lumnay sits on the side of the mountain overlooking the blazing fire and dancing women, thinking about how her life has changed. She has a sense of desperation, isolation, and worthlessness.
