WT02 Pre-Writing Template – Use of Storyboards for Writing Organization
When organizing thoughts, facts, details, examples and quotes for writing, a storyboard can be very beneficial. A storyboard can serve as a framework to help sequence thoughts and ideas before beginning the writing process. Pulling together various parts and seeing the big picture, it is easier to understand how concepts can connect and work together to create the whole. By visualizing the writing activity as a whole and in sequence, a writing roadmap is produced. As directed by teacher, (individually, with a partner, a small group and/or class), use a storyboard to initiate the writing process.
