Storyboard Text

  • "The Scarlet Ibis" by James Hurst
  • TONE
  • This is all my fault.
  • I thought he beat the odds.
  • I always knew he was cursed.
  • This isn't right.
  • I never knew that his walking was "imminent" !
  • Doodle that's amazing!
  • The "doggedness" paid off!
  • Your not a "disappointment" Doodle!
  • TWIST project by Hayley Gleason
  • I am so surprised that such an "exotic" creature is in our land!
  • This scene reflects tone because the overall expression of the story was morbid and upsetting  from the way the older brother expressed his journey with Doodle.
  • This scene reflects word choice from the story because in the story even though everyone knew that Doodle had a disability, his older brother still pushed him for excellence. He taught Doodle how to walk which thrilled his family. They were very supportive of him and proud. The words in quotes are from the story.
  • The quote reflects the birds majestic presence which paints a picture in one's mind, This is a very important part of the story because Doodle shows great interest in the bird, and relates to it. 
  • "Its legs were crossed and its clawlike feet were delicately curved at rest."
  • This quote shows the overall style/purpose of the story. Doodle is the meaning of the passage, and to tell his story.  Even though his death was inevitable, no one was truly prepared for such tragedy to strike.
  • "I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain."
  • These speech bubbles represent the recurring theme of perseverance. The older brother's selfish perseverance ultimately led to Doodle reaching results. Doodle would not have been able to walk if it wasn't for him, even though his intentions were not 100% intended for Doodle.
  • I'm done babying you tomorrow I am going to start to teach you to walk!
  • You will never reach success teaching me.
