Storyboards: A Great Tool for Unit Planning

4QM Teachers use a six-box storyboard to plan a unit. The storyboard forces you to define the story of your unit in a clear and limited way. You choose the outcome, the setting, and you get four boxes to explain how we got from one to the other. This resource is an example for a tenth grade world history unit on China and Japan from the 1830s to 1945, and a blank template storyboard for you to use yourself.


I 've started liking history a lot more! I used to have to study for hours and hours for tests, but now that I am actually taught the subjects, rather than just memorizing them, I have been much more successful and enjoy the subject.
