In addition, a teacher could assign this unit to those students who are distance learning. #DistanceLearningTPT

Broken into eight class periods, the unit can be halted intermittently if need be.

The product includes:

  • What is Kamishibai storytelling (using its form as a model)
  • The History of Kamishibai
  • How to Analyze Illustrations Just Like Film Makers Do!
  • Effective Storytelling Techniques

  • Instructions How Create the Boards and the "Tricky Part"
  • Storyboard Examples
  • Tips and Advice
  • Editable Storytelling Rubric
  • Sources

The best part? This storytelling style can be used with ANY story. Students are highly engaged and LOVE this unit!
