Conflict is what drives a story forward. Students need to understand the many types of conflicts that can exist in a piece of literature and how those struggles help to motivate characters and, in turn, create plot. Students also need to understand that many stories may have several different types of conflict but there is generally one MAIN CONFLICT. This main conflict pits the story’s protagonist against the story’s antagonist.
In this packet you will find guided notes on the different types of conflict. There is an accompanying PowerPoint presentation for students to watch as they fill in the blanks.
The PowerPoint and accompanying notes page is a good tool for familiarizing your students with the different types of conflict. If your students are already familiar with conflict, this PowerPoint can function as a review of that information.
Additionally, there are three activities for your students to complete: one whole-class activity, one small-group activity, and one writing activity.
