The presentation includes:
- definition of conflict
- definitions of internal and external conflict
- visual for internal and external conflict
- 4 common types of conflict: man vs. man, man vs. nature, man vs. himself, man vs. society
- graphic organizer/worksheet for internal and external conflict (apply to a character in whatever novel/story you are reading in class)
- graphic organizer/worksheet for 4 common types of conflict (apply to a character in whatever novel/story you are reading in class)
- blank "open mind" graphic organizer (students can write paragraphs and draw pictures inside the blank face to show a character's internal conflicts.
- large, full page visuals for each of the 4 common types of conflict (Use on an anchor chart wall. OR use for activities: print onto posters that students then use in a "carousel" or sticky note activity to brainstorm and list as many types of conflict evident within a novel.)
One of my favorite things about this resource is that it is not text specific. Since creating it, I have used it with a number of different texts, and in a variety of ways. You will be able to use this resource along with with whatever text you are already reading in class.
The initial slides can be used as a traditional PowerPoint to present the definition of conflict in literature and to guide teaching and discussion; other slides can be used as anchor charts, graphic organizers for writing or art, or parts of interactive lessons using sticky notes or "carousel" type activities.
