Students create a series of simple diagrams, much like a comic book or a movie storyboard, to record an event they have witnessed. Making a comic or storyboard is a fun way to document observations and develop visual communication skills. Laying out panels and showing the flow of action using sound effects, arrows, and other touches give students creative freedom while keeping the focus on accurately documenting what they saw. Then students can deepen their memory and strengthen their storytelling skills by writing a narrative of what they saw. The approach of going from a visual representation or storyboard to writing a story scaffolds the process of writing a narrative.
