NOTE: This handout is sized for an Interactive Student Notebook (ISN)
Includes a partial example of Act TWO:
Here's a different way to use a Story Board with lots of extras!
I got bored of the old draw a picture, add a caption...blah!
With this Story Board the students do the following for each act:
1. Choose the THREE most important scenes and draw a picture or visual depiction (like a symbol).
2. Explain WHY the scene is important.
3. Provide an important quote (with line #'s) with speaker's name.
4. Figurative Language Examples. Find an example of Dramatic Irony or Personification, Simile or Metaphor and Foreshadowing or Light/Dark Imagery. So they are finding a total of THREE devices. Then for EACH explain the importance.
5. Choose TWO characters: what advice would you give him/her and why?
We do this for EACH act of the play. It is great review of the story, it pulls out important quotes, looks at the language of Shakespeare and makes it personal. It has worked very well for me! I hope it does for you, too!
