Storyboard Text

  • Where did everybody go? Why did they leave? What will I do?
  • Wait... Maybe that lady over there could help?
  • Please?
  • NO!
  • Too bad for them, this only makes me more confident!
  • In A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, Salva Dut grows throughout the story. On page 16 -paragraph 3- the author wrote, "Good morning, Auntie, he said, his voice trembling." This shows Salva's growth because it tells you that he was scared, but he manged to gather up enough courage to talk to the old lady. As you can see, Salva changed in the third chapter of A Long Walk to Water whenever he managed to gather up enough courage to talk to her, while he was still terrified of what she might do, or think of him.
  • In chapter eleven of A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, Salva changes after three Nuer men loot his group. After the men were done looting Salva's group, they killed his uncle. As a result of this, Salva changes, and becomes more determined to go on. The author wrote, "The way they were treating him made Salva feel stronger still. There is no one left to help me. They think I am weak and useless. Salva lifted his head proudly. They are wrong, and I will prove it." This shows that Salva changes from being timid to being a little more confident in himself. As you can see, Salva changes in the eleventh chapter of A Long Walk to Water.
  • In the twelveth chapter of A Long Walk to Water Salva's personality changes again. On page 79 the author wrote, "How is it that he was not one of the thousand? Why was he one of the lucky ones?" This shows how Salva was doubting how he had survived during the Sudanese war. On page 81 the text says, "I will get us safely to Kenya, he thought. No matter how hard it is." This shows how Salva was getting more confident that he could do it even though he still wondered why he was alive. As you can see, Salva changes in the twelveth chapter of A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park.
