Why Do The Storyboards Work?

Curriculum As Narrative

We are “hardwired” for stories. From Ancient Greek philosophers to modern filmmakers and scientists, a narrative structure guides design and communication. Educators can apply this narrative approach to replace old-style “coverage” of “material” with the design of modern and invitational curriculum storyboards.

Crafting a Powerful Curriculum Storyboard

Curriculum storyboards can effectively provide a narrative flow that quickly summarizes the overall course and individual units with eye-catching visual imagery to hook the reader. Our storyboard approach helps you streamline and illustrate curriculum in any course. Your students can get to the heart of the curriculum, igniting their curiosity and empowering higher-order thinking skills to become storytellers of their own learning.

Design for Engagement, Not Coverage

In today's world it is more important than ever for educators to communicate with students and their families about curricular goals and learning experiences. Curriculum storyboards make the learning journey visible.
