Storyboarding is such an engaging way to bring the scenes of any novel to life for your students.

In this curriculum set, you’ll find everything you need to introduce students to the concept of storyboarding and help them to storyboard an important scene from your current text.

I've used the storyboarding project with 1984 and The Great Gatsby with wonderful success. Students love making the connection from literature to film, and artistic students have a chance to show another form of their intelligence. These storyboards make great displays in class too.

From the Reviews:

"This was a great resource to scaffold my learners who needed to produce a storyboard for their short films."

"Great resource!"

"Great resource! Thank you!"

What’s inside:

Student Work Examples: These two student work examples will give you a sense for what storyboards might look like. You can easily pull up more storyboards online to show your students – you might consider searching for a few from their favorite T.V. shows for inspiration. For example, here’s one from the Game of Thrones:

Project Handout: This explains the assignment to students and lets them know what steps they’ll be going through.

Creating a Storyboard: The nitty gritty.

Rough Draft Sheets: You can either give students all of these or scatter the options out in the front so they can choose a format they like.

Final Draft Sheet: This just gives students a place to create their final, gorgeous finished product. Though of course, many of them will choose to design their storyboards in some other way.

Rubric: This rubric is designed to keep you from getting bogged down while grading the work.
