The Storytelling Canvas

by Firebird Learning

If the Project-Based Learning Canvas marks the first step on an adventure, the Storytelling Canvas belongs at the end around an open fire to regale friends, family, and colleagues with your tales of dragon-slaying.

When to Use it: At the end of a cycle of project-based learning, plan how you’re going to tell the story so that it resonates strongly with your audience.

How to Use it: Look at the graphs of story archetypes at the top, and pick the one that most closely matches the emotional valence of your experience. Draw that shape in the chart below, and map the key events of your experience to your line.
