After reading Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, I show my students the movie "The Express" which is the Ernie Davis story. Both the book and movie offer a GREAT opportunity to teach conflict.
This worksheet reviews person vs. person, person vs environment, and person vs. self.
Then, it introduces person vs. society with examples and definitions.
Finally, the students watch the movie and chart examples for each category of conflict.
This was an activity that the students really enjoyed and ended up learning a lot from. They still talk about it. :)
