Storyboard Text

  • The exposition of the story would be Charlie's writing like a maniac to make sure he remembers everything, just like Dr. Strauss told him to. See, he's going to finally get smart after going through this experimental surgery. Right now, he's just plain Charlie: thirty-two years old, a bakery employee, and a student at the Beekman College Center for Retarded Adults.
  • One conflict involves Charlie and the scientists. Once Charlie becomes extremely intelligent, he wants to work to make sure that the process doesn't reverse itself. The scientists are unable to do this, which causes tension between them.
  • The rising action of the story is Dr. Strauss performs an experimental surgery on Charlie that catapults his intelligence to genius levels; Charlie falls in love with Alice but finds he is unable to consummate their relationship because he feels unresolved childhood.
  • The climax of the story would be Flowers for Algernon, by Daniel Keyes, was first published as a short story in 1959, and then as a novel in 1966. The story is told as a series of journal entries written by mentally-challenged adult Charlie Gordon. The climax of the story occurs when the intelligence-enhancing surgery for which Charlie volunteered fails, with tragic consequences.
  • The falling action of the story is that charlie gets intelligently smart but when his friend algernon dies he thinks he is gonna to because they got the same experiment done on them.
  • The resolution of the story Charlie and Alice finally consummate their relationship before Charlie’s regression worsens. They spend a few weeks together before Charlie’s moods drive her away. His coordination, spelling, and grammar worsen. His final wish as he finishes his last progress report before going to live at the Warren Home is for someone to put flowers on Algernon’s grave.
