What is a Story Board?
A storyboard is a graphic organizer that visually tells the major events in a story or play. Storyboards are essential to creating complex stories such as videos or animations, but are very useful in organizing thoughts about any writing or recorded piece. Storyboards can also be used for assessment purposes as the storyboard represents a visual representation of understanding that will be presented in the final video or recording product. Two excellent web sites that describe the art of storyboarding include:
