Students practice reading text and analyzing for various types of conflict, internal and external, antagonist, and protagonist.
Directions for use:
These conflict strips can be used for multiple activities including gallery walks, scavenger hunts, small group cooperative learning, or as a literary center activity.
note: Some cards are easier than others to analyze. Chose the scenarios that best meet your student’s needs.
Gallery Walk: Post conflict strips on the wall and / or desks around the room. Assign each individual or pair a problem number to start with. Students move around the room reading and analyzing text for the type of conflict, antagonist, and protagonist. Remind students to write the problem number in the box for each scenario.
Scavenger Hunt: Post conflict strips on the wall and / or desks around the room. Randomly place solutions strips under each conflict strip, making sure not to put the solution strip with its matching conflict strip. Assign each individual or pair a problem number to start with. After reading and analyzing the text, students go on a scavenger hunt for their solution which will lead them to the next conflict strip for them to read and analyze. Remind students to write the problem number in the box for each scenario.
note: Use number order to check for accuracy.
Small Group Cooperative Learning: Each group receives a set of conflict strips. It is important to allow time before the end of class to go over each scenario, so we recommend giving 2 or 3 to each group with no more than 6 or 8 different conflict strips in all. It helps if each group receives multiple copies of the strips so that every student gets an opportunity to read. This is especially important when working with students with auditory processing deficits. Remind students to write the problem number in each box.
Learning Center: Place selected conflict strips in the center with a stack of answer documents. Students chose a few strips to take to their desk and work on when other classwork has been completed. Strips can be separated into containers marked for difficulty level. We recommend using numbers 1 – 3 and letting students know that level 3 cards are the most difficult to analyze.
