  • I love the hiker as well! I think this would help students to vizualize the flow of a story. This would be helpful to students who need help with comprehension or as students are working through story maps and story vocabulary. Very Cool!

  • Very cool visual. Definitely allows the student to 'see' all the components of a plot diagram

  • Wow this is a really great concept to walk the students through plot using the hiker. I think it's very visually appealing and teaches the arc/mountain climbing in a really great way.
