This is a two page document which serves as a handout for the students (or you can use it as an overhead for your lesson). This works great as an activity because it has the definition of conflict as well as the definition of each of the five different types of conflict that can occur in a piece of literature.
The second page is a graphic organizer for the students on which they are to find evidence from the text and explain what type of conflict it is that they have found. The handout and graphic organizer can be used with virtually ANY text you can think of.
This is great for a common core aligned classroom!
