App smashing allows students to create projects using multiple applications (shortened to "apps") to achieve the end result. The applications can be anything from the camera app on a phone to a website like Storyboard That. Providing a variety of different apps to use lets students pick the ones that allow them to achieve their desired outcome. Each part of the project is completed in a different app and the result is an integrated presentation. Combining applications with Storyboard That enhances storytelling through the addition of photographs, audio, and video.

Character analyses are important for recognizing the depth and impact characters have on a story. Usually character analyses are a more in-depth assignment or short essay that require the student to think critically about one or more characters and make inferences from a careful reading of the text. It helps to have ways to visually organize the different parts of a character analysis with storyboards, graphic organizers or character analysis worksheets.
