Graphic organizers and sorts to help teach internal and external conflict.
These graphic organizers and sorts feature 25 beach themed examples of the following types of conflict: individual vs. nature, individual vs. individual, individual vs. technology, and individual vs. self. The 25 examples are divided into five graphic organizers that represent the story of a beach party fiasco.
This set features engaging and challenging sentences that move students from the identification of each example to careful analysis. These graphic organizers will help prepare your students for the increasing rigor of standardized tests. I have successfully used these same strategies to help students grasp conflict.
Not only do students have to identify the type of conflict each example represents, but they must also analyze and explain who the conflict involves and how the conflict is created.
This conflict packet can be adapted into several lessons. Use the sorts first to teach and/or review conflict. Be sure to cut the sorts out on cardstock and mix them up with the other examples. Class sets or partner sets work well for this. After reviewing the sorts, distribute the first graphic organizer and model a few examples before students complete the rest independently. Depending on the level of the students, you could use each graphic organizer on separate days for five lessons.
Answer keys are included for each graphic organizer.
