A common use for Storyboard That is to help students create a plot diagram of the events from a novel. Not only is this a great way to teach the parts of the plot, but it reinforces major events and help students develop greater understanding of literary structures.

Students can create a storyboard capturing the narrative arc in a novel with a six-cell storyboard containing the major parts of the plot diagram. For each cell, have students create a scene that follows the story in sequence using: Exposition, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Resolution.

Example Plot Diagram for “The Most Dangerous Game”

Exposition Setting: Caribbean Sea/Ship Trap Island. Rainsford, a big game hunter, is traveling to the Amazon by boat. He falls overboard and finds himself stranded on Ship Trap Island.

Major Inciting Conflict

On the Island, Rainsford finds a large home where Ivan, a servant, and General Zaroff, a Russian aristocrat, live. They take Rainsford in. However, he soon learns that to leave, he must win a game where he is the prey! General Zaroff’s "most dangerous game" is hunting humans.

Rising Action

Rainsford must survive for three days. He sets three traps to outwit the general, Ivan, and his bloodthirsty hounds.

Climax

Cornered, Rainsford jumps off a cliff, into the sea. He survives the fall and waits for Zaroff in his house.

Falling Action

Rainsford ambushes Zaroff, and the men duel. Presumably, Zaroff is killed and fed to the hounds.

Resolution

The story ends with Rainsford saying he has never slept more soundly in his life.
