This fun and engaging mini-lesson can be taught as a first time preview or as review of the concept. Students learn about conflict by watching commercial clips with conflict. They then apply what they have learned to a story they know or a book they are reading. This lesson gets students thinking about conflict in every area of their lives.
As always, this lesson is student tested.
