Storyboards and Tellingboards

In the age of film, video, graphic novels, and power point presentations, students need to be challenged to narrate, explain, and argue their ideas into a logical and compelling sequence of images, words, and sound. Borrowed from the film industry, storyboard and tellingboard templates guide students in the process of communicating. 
"Storyboards are made by sketch artists in the preproduction months before the shooting begins. They help the director, cameraman, set designers, and others to visualize key scenes and to save valuable production time. If the script is in the proper form and carries all of the relevant description, the director and sketch artists together can easily visualize what is going to be shown on the screen."
