This assignment asks students to determine the central type of conflict in the text as well as explain the importance of a key single example of conflict. Students must use critical thinking skills to provide reasoning and evidence. The use of direct textual support as well as precise analysis of plot and character will be used to infer deeper meanings about conflicts within the text and how they shape the overall understanding of the reading.
This assignment can be used for ANY assigned reading that features conflict such as literature, informational text, non-fiction etc.
Specifically, I have attached the Crucible to this assignment, but it can be easily modified by changing the title and images.
