Storyboard Text

  • The Scarlet Ibis
  • (William/Looks) "He seemed all head, with a tiny body which was red and shriveled like an old man's" (Hurst 316).
  • (William/Effect On Others) "This time he did not lift his face up out of the rubber grass. "I just can'tdo it. Let's make honeysuckle wreaths."" (Hurst 3--).
  • James Hurst
  • (Narrator/Speech) ""Aw, come on, Doodle," I urged. "You can do it. Do you want to be different from everybody else when you start school?"" (Hurst 3--)
  • This reveals that... William is dependent on everyone around him. He was born with a lot of medical problems, so his family will need to take care of him. 
  • (Family/Action) "There wasn't a sound as Doodle walked slowly across the room and sat down at his place at the table. Then Mama began to cry and ran over to him,  hugging him and kissing him. Daddy hugged him too" (Hurst 3--)
  • This reveals that... At first William had no want or need to be like everyone else which put, even though it was unneeded, stress on his older brother and the rest of the family.
  • (Narrator/Thoughts) "When Doodle was five years old, I was embarrassed at having a brother of that age who couldn't walk" (Hurst 3--)
  • This reveals that... The narrator was desperate at that point to make William look normal to his fellow students. It would also allow the narrator to avoid future teasing and bullying for both him and his brother.
  • This reveals that William and the family never thought that their son would actually be able to walk instead of just crawling everywhere. It also shows that they are elated about it, not angry or ashamed about never helping him achieve this physical feat.
  • This reveals that...The older brother understands that William is special, but he believes that he can be equal to everyone else. It also shows that a part of the lessons are for his own gain.
