Visual Storytelling and the Five-Frame Story


Creating: Working in groups, students were assigned one of seven short stories.
Each group was assigned to read and analyze the story. Students considered the exposition, the conflict, the climax (i.e. the turning point/discovery point), and the resolution/denouement. After discussing the short story in small groups, they brainstormed ways to visually represent these key elements and completed a five-frame storyboard
Reviewing, revising, and reflecting:
Their assignment was to produce a five-frame visual story to present to the class. The goal of their finished project was to capture the essence of the key elements in five frames.
