Storyboard Text

  • Flowers For Algernon
  • Genre -  Fiction
  • By: Daniel Keyes
  • Jordan Driver
  • Theme - I think an appropriate theme for this story is "you don't have to be smart to be perfect."
  • Supporting Evidence - Charlie makes a decision to have a special surgery done so that he can become smart like everyone else.
  • Predictions I made - After Charlie's surgery, I thought that everyone who worked at the bakery with him would accept him now. This prediction was incorrect.
  • Foreshadowing -  When Algernon is first introduced, it says that he is given cheese in order for him to make it to the end of the maze. Later, Charlie is given a piece of candy. This foreshadows that the candy will help Charlie succeed in becoming smart.
  • Conflicts - Self vs. Society & Self vs. Nature
  • Self vs. Nature - Charlie was born dumb so there was nothing he could do about it. He struggled with this his whole life.
  • Self vs. Society - Charlie is always struggling with people not accepting him because he is not as smart as them.
  • I like Charlie because he is strong willed and stands up for himself. At one point in the story, a boy dropped and shattered plates and everyone laughed at him. Charlie then stood up and told them to stop laughing, that he made a mistake and is a human being.
  • My Favorite Character - Charlie
  • I think that someone could get into this book if they are going through the same thing as Charlie because they can relate to him.
  • Issues being addressed in the story - What it's like to be "retarded"
  • Why did the author write this book?  To entertain
