Storyboard Text

  • "I'm visiting Miss Benson"
  • "What do you want?"
  • "Done reading the story."
  • "Why don't you read Risa?"
  • "No! Lets do something else"
  • "Why did you leave your little brothers alone."
  • "Andrew is sick"
  • Conflict External Conflict: Heather and Risa do not like each other, and are rude to each other."On my way out of the apartment building, I couldn't help nut notice. The blooms on the lilac bushes were a crisp brown, the color of tea. So the girl was a liar, too, besides being a poor reader." "When I came back with the book , Risa looked at it and said low, under her breather, "Dummy. That one's for little kids." But then Miss Benson asked, "What book did you get?" and when I told her, she clapped her hands and said, "Perfect!" So I hot Risa a dirty look." Internal Conflict: Risa can't really read, but she wants to read to Mrs.Benson.  "As soon as I finished reading I knew Risa wasn't a vey good reader, because Mrs. Benson ask Risa "Ok Risa why don't you read the next one?" While I was reading she couldn't get close enough to the book, but suddenly she couldn't get away from it fast enough. "Oh no!" Risa said
  • Characterization Heather can be described as judging.  She judged Risa on her appearance, and how sloppy she look, without getting to know her.  "I'm visiting Miss benson," "I told her, which was perfectly obvious. The girl had long brown hair. Kind of reddish brown. But it was a tangles mess. I'll swear she'd pulled it into a ponytail that morning without ever passing it by a brush. "Why are you visiting her?" "She wanted to know. It would have sounded really dumb to say, "Because I'm a Girl Scout, and she is my good deed for the summer." " So instead I insisted, "I've come to read to her." "And I than I added, just in case this girl didn't know anything at all, "She's sight impaired, you know."
  • Theme The theme implied in "The Good Deed" is don't judge people by their first impressions.  "I'm visiting Miss benson," "I told her, which was perfectly obvious. The girl had long brown hair. Kind of reddish brown. But it was a tangles mess. I'll swear she'd pulled it into a ponytail that morning without ever passing it by a brush. "Why are you visiting her?" "She wanted to know. It would have sounded really dumb to say, "Because I'm a Girl Scout, and she is my good deed for the summer." " So instead I insisted, "I've come to read to her." "And I than I added, just in case this girl didn't know anything at all, "She's sight impaired, you know." "Suddenly I could see how scared she'd been, scared for the baby, scared to go off and have her brothers, probably scared to walk into a strange doctor's office alone. "Here," "I said, moving toward her. "Let me take hime. Is he going to be ok."
