Storyboard Text

  • Rising Action
  • His eye is always closed! Why?!?
  • Climax
  • That eye!
  • Falling Action
  • I have to hide this.
  • The rising action develops conflict and starts making us ask questions about the story. The narrator hates the old mans eye and is waiting to kill him. "And every night at midnight, I opened his door. I eased it open very gently. When I had made an opening large enough for my head, I put in a lantern.
  • The climax is the turning point in the story. The narrator kills the old man with the lantern. "Then I smiled. The deed was almost done. But for many minutes the heart beat on with a muffled sound.
  • The falling action is when the loose ends tie up and most of our questions are answered. The narrator hides the body. " I worked quickly, but silently. First I cut off the head and the arms and the legs. Then I took up three planks from the floor and put the pieces in the space underneath
