Storyboard That Releases New Teacher Guides for Classic Literature
For the last couple of years Storyboard That has offered great guides to using storyboards in the classroom. The latest update to their Teacher Guides section includes new guides for using storyboards to help students understand classic works including Lord of the Flies, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Oedipus, The Tell Tale Heart, and Animal Farm. The guides include plot diagrams, character diagrams, and vocabulary diagrams. Each guide also includes references to Common Core standards.
In February I hosted a webinar all about the features of Storyboard That and ideas for using it in your classroom. The recording of that webinar is embedded below.
Applications for Education
Storyboard That provides a great way for students to visually organize their thoughts about a topic, to plan a story, or to illustrate their understanding of a story. As you can see in the teacher guides, Storyboard That also provides great visual tools for teachers to use to help students understand big concepts.
