Purpose: To demonstrate knowledge of plot and conflict
Students use cloud metaphor to identify conflict in the story. Students will use small group and large group discuss to identify common conflict patterns in stories (man vs man, man vs nature,...). They will also look for textual evidence (page numbers) to support their conclusions and then will share findings with the class. This is for a 9th grade English class toward the beginning of the year, when they still need a lot of guidance. We use the Elements of Literature selections of the The Odyssey for this unit and you can see the entire unit plan as another one of my postings.
