Activity Overview


Valuable aspects of any literary work are its themes, symbols, and motifs. Part of the Common Core ELA standards is to introduce and explain these complex concepts. However, abstract ideas are often difficult for students to understand without assistance. Using a storyboard, students can visually demonstrate their understanding of these concepts, and master analysis of literary elements.

In this activity, students can chose a symbol from the poem and depict what they think it represents using a storyboard.


Wings

In this poem, wings symbolize a person's abilities.

  • In the first stanza, they keep their wings by their side. The person doesn't think they can succeed.
  • In the third stanza, the wings are open and ready for flight. The person realizes their potential.
